    I rarely use carbide insert tooling. However, I use a lot of modern cobalt HSS tools. The newer cobalt HSS is much better than older HSS tool alloys. I am interested in tool sizes from 1/8" through...

    You are not the only one still using cutting oil. I do as well on my big L&S to eliminate that crud that grows in coolant, but it is expensive to do. Cutting oil is also not without its issues...
