Default Carbide inserts

I will be ordering a carbide insert, but they are sold in packs of ten.

I'm just seeing if there would be any interest for them. I have also asked on a couple of other forums since I don't need ten.

The specifics...

150mm radius
They would cost $15/ea with free shipping in a standard envelope.

You can get the same thing on Amazon for $28 for a pack of 10.
If you're paying that much for them, you're getting hosed.

Be happy in your work...Col. Saito

Thanks for the link, but those are straight, not radius and they are made in China as opposed to in the US.

I've used these before and the quality is great. They are micro-carbide and the edge lasts extremely long on hard materials. I will keep them if there's no interest, they will just last me a lifetime.

I would never, knowingly, buy carbides that are not made in the US ... at any price.

Been there, done that !

Sorry, but they wouldn't fit my tools or I'd help you out. Just out of curiosity, have you tried AZ Carbide inserts? They're available in singles or 10-packs.

I think you can find a better deal here:

This is John Austin's store (IAP name hanau). I have bought from him in the past and his inserts work great.

I use John Austinís inserts. I like his inserts and he is a straight forward guy to deal with.
