Carbide Inserts?

I have some cheap Enco lathe tool holders that came with TCMM (TT) 321
inserts. The holders suit my needs, but I am now running out of inserts.
Enco wants 3-5 bucks a piece for them. I have tried EBay and I have yet
to see this insert listed. Is there some place that has them cheaper or
better yet, what inserts might be substituted for use with these holders?
TIA

Buy good ones. You get what you pay for. I usually get a lot of mileage out of inserts, are you having some kind of problems?

I have a bunch, way more than I'll probably ever use. If you want to discuss a possible arrangement, go to html://

No, I am not having any problems and the old ones lasted pretty long or until I did something stupid and broke them. I have reground the old ones about as much as I can. For my other tool holders I have been able to get cheaper ones of good quality off of EBay.

Note to Grant: "HTTP://" works better. ;)
Check your email box, Wes. Happy Turkey Day.

Photoshop CS2. But Gimp can do that from what I hear. _Some_ day I'll actually get a Linux machine up and running and find out.
Fred's welcome, Wes. ;)

Gimp runs on winders too.

Runs from an usb flash drive and don't have to install it on your computer. I carry a bunch of portable apps with me.

Ah, interesting! Danke. I have a 2GB Sandisk Cruzer drive already. Hmmm...[downloading now]

You might want to do some searching on Gimp and Windows. I've noted a lot of different ways to run it while searching for other stuff. Here is another link to check out:

Thanks, Leon. I DLed the portable and it's giving me beaucoup errors both while loading and when trying to open a file. I have to double cancel the errors and then it works fine. Strange.
I'll try another download and see if it works better from that.

I would have to do some digging, but there was a website that had available for download just the libraries/functions (Cygwin) needed for the Gimp. The one I offered maybe the one, I didn't look that close. Just thought I would make you aware of it.
If you can get it running, there are some pretty cool plugins available :)

Sorry you are having problems with it Larry, I've used it periodically for a few months w/o errors on a couple machines, one a W2K and the other a Xpee.
The windows version that installs as a non portable version is at:
