    Default Do GTN3 style parting tips come handed?

    I just started using GTN3 parting tip blade holders, and I only seem to be able to find ‘straight cut’ style inserts rather than the left and right handed version available with Sandvik tips

    I want to leave the bur on the stock not the part so cutting edge furthest forward on the right hand side but can’t find the tips, do they exist in GTN3 style ?

    Pretty sure the "N" in GTN means neutral. Search for "GTR" or "GTL" for handed inserts.

    Regards.

    If you only need to make a few cuts just grind the front angle to what you need. I do that also on bronze to get the razor sharp edge that cuts clean.
