    Yes, pretty common. They play in the big boys league. They are pretty good cutters in my experience.

          I don't think so. They may have been at one time, but last I heard they were bought by Iscar.

            I have a couple that came along with a box of other cutters. They're great, but the APKT inserts are a uncommon size. I got a box on ebay, and I'm good to go for now.
            I cut it off twice; it's still too short

              Ingersoll is good quality, but in the past they have often had oddball size and shapes of inserts that can be hard to find.

                Take care with that brand, the quality is fine but they tend to like proprietry inserts which may be very hard to find after a year or two.

                  Ingersoll made huge planer mills at one time.
                  Take 1" removal per pass was not uncommon.

                    I think these came out of a large Aerospace Machining Facility.

                    I was fortunate to get matching inserts for the holder that should last me a lifetime for a reasonable price.

                      You should be ok, there are 12 loads and 2 ends per load, plus a couple of spare inserts. Are they for steel? What is the insert designation?

                        Ingersoll also built transfer lines for machining engine blocks, transmission housings, etc. I suspect most of the transfer lines have become obsolete due to CNC.

                          Ingersoll lists them as Multi Purpose which I assume includes steel.
