I'm looking for higher quality carbide inserts so I can see if they are better than the generic ones that came with my tooling. I'm using TCMT32.5x inserts. What 'x' (radii) are recommended for your weekend warrior with a not-too-powerful lathe? My assumption is that a tip with a larger radius will create a better finish.
Of course I'm looking for the sweet spot between price and quality.
Do we have favored brands of inserts and favored distributors?
