Any of you have some good sites for inexpensive carbide tips for our turning scrapers and such.

The ones I see from Sorby and such are way over priced, when compared to ones I can get for my spiral jointer and such.

I used AZ Carbide and was very happy with them. You can buy singles or multipacks and with or without the screws.

Look for the ones from Cap’n Eddy Castelin. They seem to the very well priced. I have them and like them.
