Topic tags/keywords: question

Newer member here with a question.
I purchased the Mini Carbide turning tool set from Rockler for doing smaller turnings.
My question is will the Detail insert from Easywood Tools fit the Rockler tool? They appear to be nearly the same but can’t find any dimensions anywhere.
If anyone has the Easywood detailer insert (Ci4), what are the dimensions of the insert. Tip to tip and width at the angle where the screw hole is located, so I can compare the two, rather than purchasing one and finding that it does not fit.
Any help would be appreciated.

Google Cap’n Eddie Castelin. He sells replacement cutters for most carbide tools at about 1/3 the price of Rockler etc.

Any industrial supply house; McMaster Carr, MSC, Travers, etc carry enormous selections of carbide inserts and they can provide dimensions as they are standard from company to company.

I buy from AZCarbide and highly recommend them. I’ve ordered on a Friday night and they are in the mail Saturday morning.

.394” wide across the screw area, and 1.218” point to point. This is a pointed insert, unlike the Easywood insert that has a small radius. Dale at AZ Carbide is starting to carry them now, and they do fit the Ci4…....... Jerry (in Tucson)
