    It uses QOGT and QOMT Mistubishi / Iscar inserts.

    I also use soft jaws machined to hold odd shaped parts. Here is a video showing soft jaws that were machined to hold multiple 3/8” diameter x 1/8” discs being 2-56 tapped. Tapping 2-56 On Tormach Video by miltons_stuff | Photobucket

    David, you inspired me to buy the 17mm cutter. All I can say is thanks this thing is great. And I also use aluminum jaws 90% of the time. I treat them more like fixtures than jaws and have many sets that are just for specific parts as well as several new sets in reserve just in case.

    Without wishing to Hi-jack, could I also recommend the Dijet Super End Chipper? I use a 16mm SECM quite a lot now, cutting steel rather than Aluminium, and it's actually a very good match for the Tormach.
    Cut this lump of EN8 (1045 steel) the other day, not pushing things at all really, using 2400rpm and 450mm/18 IPM feed at 1.5mm/0.060" DOC at full width (16mm) and it hardly moved the load meter at all.
    Just cut really, really nicely - smooth and very little noise. Only disadvantage was that I had to make a new TTS adaptor for it to suit the 16mm shank. Stickout from this is 2".
