Ahm lookin to go cheap on a 3" face mill, 6 square inserts. Actually, I'd like the cheapest square inserts I can find, and then I'd buy the face mill. How wrong could I go with this/these?
In the rh column, you see some inserts, which I were $4-5 in their catalog, I'll have to see whazzup.
The facemills I have (sandviks, in various states of destruction), have a kind of "backing insert". This shars tool just has the insert rest on the metal body itself, proly a much cheaper design, but hopefully it will do.
When I finally get to limited production, I'll spend a bit more, but right now ahm just breakin shit left and right -- me or my partner.
Opinions? Any sources of really cheap inserts? Tried enco, online catalog is a little difficult, and don't seem so cheap.
Btw, the whole "bidniss of inserts" is staggeringly complicated, at least to me, ito sheer VOLUME of specs.... goodgawd..... "Generic" does not seem to apply, like in, say, a cat 40 1/2" tool holder, which will hold any 1/2 tool.
