Chris' Tips This tool ships with two kinds of inserts. The TPMC-32-NV insert is better in stainless and the TNMC-32-NV is better in alloy steels. You can use either for internal and external threading.
The difference is the relief angle. TPMC inserts have an 11 degree relief angle. TNMC inserts have a 0 degree relief angle.Make sure you get the correct inserts and retaining screws for your indexable turning tools.
