Does anyone have a source for a turning tool for the unused corners of a 32.5x ccmt insert? 1/2" or 5/8" shank. Google search pulls up some "recycle" face mills for the un-used corners but I am not seeing a turning tool. There used to be a few listed on ebay a while back but I haven't seen them on there for a while.

While on the subject, has anyone used the facemills for those inserts?

Bought this left handed one on Ebay UK for my fly cutter a few months ago Ebay CCMT Holder (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SCKCL1212H09-CNC-Lathe-Internal-Threading-Turning-Tool-Holder-w-Wrench/292216270029?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649) I think the seller had other varieties also.

Try AR Warner. I know for a fact that they have the ccmt2151 turning holders, as I have one of them.

If you scroll down on this link you will find the "opposite corner" holders. https://www.glanze.co.uk/acatalog/Single_Turning_Tools.html

I have been pleased with the quality of these holders and have two sets of each for both aluminum and steel cutting.

Interesting........although it defeats the advantage of CCMT's in being able to both turn and face. I may go for the ebay one after I verify the CC**09T3** is a CCMT3x series.

I have a Lindsay Bros face mill that does the same with the unused corners of negative rake turning inserts.

09t = 32.5x, metric vs imperial nomenclature

I'd be interested in hearing about their use in face mills, be nice just to stock one type of insert, though I guess it's not such a big issue given how cheap inserts are now

"I guess it's not such a big issue given how cheap inserts are now"

Hmmmmm....are they really cheap now? The name brand, known high quality have gone up substantially in price of late.

Looking on eBay I see what appear to be name brand in packaging to match. Given their low pricing it makes you wonder what they're selling. The obvious answer may be they're selling counterfeits.

I've seen posts on this forum saying the inexpensive Chinese inserts are good enough for limited hobby use. I have yet to try any, but i do have a use in cutting hardwoods where they might do the trick as opposed to the same size quality inserts in the 10+ buck each range.

The sharp edge ones for aluminum work great for wood cutting.

Ccmt 21.51 $5/10, ccgt 21.51 $10/10 I've used mine a bunch, the ccmt are a bit too blunt for my small lathe but the ccgt absolutely rock. Like sharp honed hss, but without the worry of material buildup or wear.

I always figured they walked out of a shop in somebody's lunch bucket.

Thanks for the links, if I can't find one in the US I will be able to get one from over seas. I at least know what the holder is called letter wise.

With the "TiN" coating that comes out of a spray can of gold paint. The way to turn 5 cents of metal into $30....

TiN coating is very cheap to apply once you're set up for it.
