Diamond Bits for Truing Lathes

Sometme ago, I saw a post on this foum about an online tool catalog where you can purchase diamond cuttng bits for the motor lathes that we use at a much lower cost than what you would pay at your local hobby dealer.
Naturally, as this forum is huge, I've been unable to find the post. So I'm asking anyone who knows the link to please forward it to me or post it here. I'd much appreciate it. Thank you.

Here you go:

http://www.mcmaster.com

search by diamond bits. The section Polycrystalline Diamond-Tipped Tool Bit is the one

The lathes that cut from left to right use AR bits and the ones that cut from right to left use the AL bits.

The measure is 1/4"x1/4".

They are EXCELLENT

Actually, the site I was looking for was Enco. Can't believe I actuall found it. But thank you anyway. Unfortunately, the site msmater.com does not seem to be compatible with my browsers and I use the latest of iexplorer and netscape. :-/ I just don't know. But thanks a million.

I found carbide bits for under $4.00 at MCmaster! you can get 13-15 carbide bits for the same price as a diamond bit, and carbide bits cut just as nicely, infact some say better!!

Those 14 carbide bits wouldn't last me through one season of racing, unless I went through the effort of pulling them out of the lathe and getting them resharpened, then re-tuning the lathe again each time I changed a bit.

On the other hand, I've had the same diamond bit in my lathe for twelve years now, and it cuts as well now as the day I set it up. It's never been out of the lathe, and it's been completely trouble and effort free.

Just another point of view...

You can probably just go to Yahoo and do a search on Carter diamond bits.

Does anyone have part numbers for diamond and carbide bits for right-to-left cutting lathe (Xipp X-mod super lathe) from the McMasterCarr website (or any other webshop for that matter)?
