    We get many requests to supply carbide tips in small quantities for use at home, hobbyists etc so we decided to make a small range of turning tips available in packs of 2. These cost sightly more per tip but it saves on buying a box of 10 that you may never use.

    They can be found here Carbide Tips Hobby Use Please note these are intended for web orders only, if you call the person on the phone may not know they exist.

    Hope this is of help.

    Thanks APT.

    Do you do requests?

    A starter pack would be great in the 30-50 range. A mix of a couple of endmills, ballends, v-bit etc maybe a few for PCB's and a cheap facemill to level your mdf table with if budget allows.

    I think most of the people building CNC's machines for hobby usually have zero tooling so it's quite helpful that you guys are starting to cater to small volume users. I'm sure you could get feedback from users here on a good selection if you are interested?

    Just small packs of inserts at the moment as we were getting asked to spit packets from a wide range of interests from pen makers, fishing rods, telescope mounts, bowls Etc. The carbide end mills are available in singles.
