    the bits are good but the tooling is v/expensive....the square is just a little brittle tho.....
    ok for fine light cuts i've found......no need for coolant but usually I drown mine....
    made me own tooling, double ended holder....round 1 end and the square the other.....pre set for hight..
    quite handy in a quick change toolholder (Dickenson)

    A gentleman on the Yahoo Boxford User's Group, Niels Abildgaard, has done a lot of experimentation with home made tangential holders and tool posts. He achieves very deep cuts consistently. He tends to go for Crobalt or 3 mm round carbide, which can be bought pretty cheaply. Rigidity in the holding system is paramount.

    Isn’t it just a length of HSS, with all the qualities of HHS? :dontknow:
