Sherline Lathe 1/4 inch Carbide Insert bit Alternative

Those little triangle carbide inserts are OK although there are some "not worth buying" ones out there so be careful ordering the cheapest.

I was trying to get to a carbide bit for my wood turning project when I came across these diamond shaped inserts and went ahead and made a holder to use with the standard tool post

One is 3/8 square and the other is 1/4 x 1/2

good so far

I think the goal is to use more conventional bits that are easier to find locally
