6mm carbide inserts

These just arrived from eBay. I won the bid at £37 inc, that’s £1.23 an insert. These sell for around £5 to £10 each over here depending where you get them. The last time I looked they were about $14 each in the US. I think I got a good deal!  Smiley

That looks like a great deal!  I'm not finding these cutters for less than $10-12 USD locally.

+1
A 6mm (#1) Hunter type cutter are $20 from Hunter and about $10-$15 most other places. Hopefully these last for you

What is the insert code number - are they aluminium cutting inserts or some wood specials?

As a matter of interest, the best fixings I’ve found for these inserts are Taiwan made M2.5 x 6 Torx screws sold by electromechanical-sam on the auction site. They cost about £5 for twenty and often come with a free Flag style Torx driver.  Wink
