I am desperately searching and in need of a lathe index tool but I am not sure of the best one to have. I have always had my work done with the help of brazed TCT tools but all I have experienced is pain as I have to ensure that they are sharpened almost every week , add the cost of sharpening and the transport cost to and fro at the end of every week.
They also got a week turn around.
This idea of having an index tool would imply that it is possible for me to have a different tip when it is required. So, if you take a look at the tips, it is possible to turn them around and have the other end use. Others also have three points.
Is there someone with any idea on the best tool to go for? Don’t forget to give the reasons for your recommendation….
