Hi all, I am new to this so I hope I posted in the correct area. I recently made some shop upgrades from a 6 inch jointer to a used grizzly g0490x spiral cutter 8 incher. I also have the 15’’ planer with the grizzly spiral cutter head. I called grizzly and they told me both machines use the same carbide cutter. Their website list a price of around 55 dollars for 10 inserts. Seems expensive. I asked them if I could use another brand of cutter and they did’t know for sure but advised against it. My question is, does anybody know if there is a brand they have used for replacing these cutters other than grizzlies carbide cutters? Thanks for your help.

bryguy22 I would get the dimensions of the cutter and see if Global tooling has anything that will work. http://www.globaltooling.net/ I recently bought inserts to make my own turning tools and they were around a $1.50 each.

I recieved the carbide inserts from global tooling and talked with the guy there he was very knowledgeable. They got them to me from the west coast in two or three days. They come in packs of ten. I tried them out on the jointer and they work great 14×14x2mm square carbide inserts for a fraction and I mean fraction of the cost grizzly wants for them. Im going to order enough to replace all my machines with carbide cutters so i’ll need about 100 carbide inserts Ahhhhhh. they are only 1.47 from global tooling very affordable. thanks for the advice guys
