    So what's the verdict then? Good enough for the price, or complete junk?

    I was reading an article recently about using the shank of old Morse taper drills to adapt for other purposes by sawing off the shank. Typically, the shank was left soft and only the cutting part was hardened. Not sure that the shank needs to be hard.

    I now have 2mm -> 10mm.
    They have a gritty feel, may need a wash.

    They are so cheap that i bought 2 of them . 1x 130mm long and the other one i cut in half for normal jobs. I think it's good enough reason, especially when now i have 2 sets of inserts, one for aluminum and one for steel and cast iron. I think even that the aluminum ones will be good for plastic. Just as a side note that these are side cutters, they can not plunge. and the 12mm one is one flute only

    Be nice to see a pic of them Boyan. Its not uncommon for shanks of that kind of tooling to be soft ish and are often are tough rather than hard, depends on manufacturer and quality but sometimes hard is not good and its promotes resonance rather than curing it. Most cutters like that you can't plunge with. but are perfectly capable of ramping and helical ramping to get the tool down if the machine will allow and take the load.

    The rest of the them arrived today in 2 more packets.

    Measured the 10 mm reamer with digital calipers and they were 10.00 mm. I know there is a tolerance those calipers but it seems good so far.

    I've received two so far, in two separate envelopes... What a funny way to run a business!
