  • Availability of cutters

    I bought a set of turning tool set indexable with removable cutters.it looks good for the money nine cutters for under آ£50 .Madde in india or China I suspect bottom of the range but useable , however it suddenly struck me that,once used it may be difficult to get replacement tips. So is it good value after all or should I be able to get cutter tips easily from another source that will fit.Are these interchangeable or is the dearer set more sensible in the long run.Alistair not Georgia USA but Dunoon Scotland

      You should be able to find inserts easily. There are tons on eBay, sometimes for cheap money.

      The hardware (screws, shims - if any, etc.) are another story and if they go you might just have to toss it, but for آ£5.50 a new holder is cheap as an insert. The nice thing about getting inserts is any replacement will be tons better than the ones included with the tools.

      You might even get lucky - some of the cheapie tool holders have standard sized hardware too.

      Check MSC for insert information and prices.

          Alistair.....

          I think the tips you want are.....TCMT 110204,if you can get TCMT 110202 you will get a better tip for finishing.
          I usually get Sandvik when I buy any.Last time I bought any was about 4 yrs ago as I mainly use HSS.

                  Alistair, I have used blanks. As long as the rake and edge is close you can scrape metal off.

                  If you get close to the pictures there it'll work just great.
