I use global tooling for the large 15mm cutters and AZ carbide for the smaller ones.

I used to use AZ Carbide, I am only stopped using them because I hardly ever use carbide any more. I have several family members that are machinists; they appear to use inserts that are "better" than what we typically buy (maybe at a higher cost). I just left a message for one of them and see what he has to say.

Here's another vote for AZ--good prices, good selection, and excellent service. Global is a bit less expensive, but I thought their selection was a bit lacking (no pun intended).

Oh, go ahead and admit it. It was a great pun.

Big Guy productions (Capt. Eddie Castelin) also sells carbide inserts. Good service and competitive.

Also have a look on eBay. I got some of the little 6mm shear cutters quite cheap. One of my favourite carbide cutters at the moment thought are the round 9mm ones. These work really well and can be resharpened by passing them over a diamond hone. Currently the 9mm ones are 4.50 over here from this guy:

Any and all responses greatly appreciated.

I seldom use any carbide cutters anymore , i get allot better results using a live cutter using mill ends or router bits and slitting saws.
I mounted laminated trimmers on my tool post.
