    Amana VBits with Replaceable Carbide Tips

    Was wondering if any one has used the Amana VBits with replaceable carbide cutters, something like this:

    The carbide replacements are around 20.00 or so.

    I haven't used them...yet...but they are on my longer-term purchase list, Anthony.

    Good seeing you at the Aspire event!

    They are on my list too. I'm waiting on a report from a friend that just bought them.

    They're great. A lot of bang for the buck, since you can rotate the insert for two uses.

    I went ahead and ordered the set. Once I've had a chance to use them I'll report back. Little expensive to get started, but replacement carbide tips are 22-25.00

    Yea, that's the thing with insert cutters...the initial purchase hits quite a bit harder, but over time, they should be far more economical, especially if there is a bit of more abrasive material getting cut with them.
