  • carbideanddiamondtooling

    Hi All,

    Anyone ever deal with this company? Prices seem a bit too good to be true.
    http://www.carbideanddiamondtooling.com/

    or maybe it's just the bad web site and the
    "We Deduct a Huge 40% Discount From The Prices Shown"
    cheesy wording of the discount.

    Thanks - Scott

        ... manufactured in the USA, Europe and the Pacific Ring.
        Heh. Pacific Ring = China. Nice. I haven't seen that before.

          I don't buy carbide inserts unless I know who actually makes them.

            According to Google maps the address is in the middle of a large farm field in west New York.

              ↑ This. Plus, I want to know the grade and/or coating. There are grades for turning and grades for milling, both in shapes such as TPG321. I want the right grade for the application, otherwise a $1 insert can cost me more in time, frustration and BS than a $12 insert.

                Indeed. Pretty safe to assume they made one insert in the US, one in Europe and the rest in China. You might as well buy the no-name inserts from Enco, Arc-Euro, or on Ebay.

                Personally, I like Sandvik inserts (Sweden)...

                  Definitely agree. Sandvik owns Dormer and Dormer is some of the best tooling available.

                    Sandvik recently moved Dormer into the Sandvik Coromant line altogether, so like the Valenite name going into Walter, I'd bet that the Dormer name will disappear within a few years.
