Carbide Tipped Tool Bits need some help
« on: November 08, 2018, 04:45:52 PM »
Hello everyone,

I cannot find any source here in the US for style CT (cutoff / parting ) Carbide Tipped Tool Bits in grade C2 and C6 in a size " x ". I have found some in size " x 1" high which will not fit in my quick change tool post. I would also take the style ISO7R.

If anybody has a source please let me know.

Have a great day,
Thomas

Thomas,

Brazed carbide tipped blades, or indexable carbide tips?  Do you need the blade/bit holder also, or just the carbide blade/inserts?

Double checked, littlemachineshop.com carries cutoff blades and indexable cutoff tools and holders sized for 3/8 and 1/2 toolposts.  I don't know what carbide is on the brazed blade, it doesn't specify.  I'd assume you could find whatever carbide tips you want for the indexable cutter blades.  LMS carries C6 and C2 carbides to fit their indexable holder blade.

Hello Bent,

No the Carbide Tipped are the one that are brazed on tips.

Have a great day,

Hello again Bent,

What I am looking for is a one-piece tool after the tip has been brazed on. No replacement inserts or the indexable style.

The Cutoff/Parting tool come in "sets" and in the past could be purchased individually like the other tools. I found one company in the US that offers the 1/2 x 1/2 size but they sell for $18.95 plus shipping at $6.25 each. Normally an individual tool (C2 or C6 grade) sells for $4 to $8.

Thanks for your help,
Thomas

Hey everyone,

I gave in and placed an order with Banggood for some Bits, now I will find out if they have quality products. If any body does have a US source for these bits please let me know.

Have a great day,
Thomas
