    Search for the number on the shank. You see that it is a shank for GAD? (last letter varies) endpieces, which are part of Iscar's Cut Grip system. 'iscar cut grip insert' will then find the inserts.

    I think I might have a couple of those let me go and check...

    ...I got one that size. One end is used (but good) the other is unused. If you want it I will pop it in an envelope.

    @Agroshield I spent the best part of an hour on google before coming here to ask the question the question.
    As with all insert tooling without an exact code it gets very hard (for a layman) to find anything out, especially if it is a discontinued product
    I couldn't even find an image of these tips, maybe i can't see the wood for the trees ??

    @Pete. Fabulous offer will drop you a message

    Sorry if the reply was not quite what you wanted. Perhaps I should have been less brief. I reached a slight dead end after I did everything posted above as there were lots of promising references on Iscar's own website but I kept getting privacy errors and the pages would not load. I thought maybe if you tried the same, you might not have the errors.

    Anyway, try here for some actual insert codes:

    First question: do the inserts just press in? The tool looks like it will only lever them back out.

    And it is brilliant. I have gone from being terrified of parting off to loving it.

    Just tap them in with a block of wood or similar.

    And I'm guessing I need coolant like Pete said you do with HSS? Can you tell I'm a bit scared to immediately crack a brand new insert. :laughing:

    I normally use cutting fluid but when I run out I just use some oil.
    On aluminium WD40.

    I thwack them with a nylon mallet. :D

    You can use them dry but a bit of oil or coolant definitely is advisable, i like to "flood" it with a squeeze bottle

    The great thing about most carbide parting inserts is that the geometry creates a chip narrower than the groove which aids hugely in chip evacuation.

    The iscar inserts I have are incredibly strong....I'm amazed at how they've survived my hand fistedness.
