    Default Identifying Carbide Inserts

    As part of an estate sale, I got a small compartment box of carbide inserts: triangle, square, coated, plain, holes, etc. However, I got no holders, so they are useless so far.

    How can I identify them so I can decide if I want to purchase holders? Are there any standards for these, or are they per manufacturer? I know very little about inserts - I've usually used brazed ones.

    Steve, I've sent you one by e-mail. Paul.
