Looking for minilathe help

by Drew

Years ago I bought a minilathe with full intentions of combining it with my minimill and workoing on doing some serious custom projects. Sadly my ambitions have always been slightly larger than my skills, most significantly my skill at grinding my own tooling. Does anyone know where you can buy minilathe sized tooling right off the shelf? Specifically o-ring groovers (internal and external) and some really basic cutting blades preferably with replaceable tips. Every time I try to buy some the shank size is just too big and ends up being above center if it fits in the tool holder at all.
