    Little Machine Shop sells Warner HSS inserts and holders. After you get started, you might want to look into those as well. They would be well suited to your 1/2 hp lathe.

    Ceramic is good

    These inserts avaliable from The Carbide Depot can be used on the small cheap import tool holders and they work great.

    I've bought insert holders and inserts from CTC Tools in Hong Kong and haven't been disappointed yet. Packages take a week or three to get here, postage charges are reasonable.

    Insert tooling for Small CNC Lathe

    Over the last couple of weeks I have become the owner of an almost new, Syil
    C6B CNC Lathe, which is a Sieg C6 that has been CNC'ed by Syil.
    It is fitted with a Dickson style quick change toolholder which will do for a while
    until I learn how to work it!
    What I want to find is a set of reasonably priced insert style tool holders, which take conventional inserts, Not the cheap sets where you have to buy a full set of seven or eight inserts with massive tip radii and negative rake for a 1/2 hp lathe.
    And not overpriced like that Australian supplier!
