Pretty neat tool but they're definitely not cheap. There's only one local Sandvik distributor around here and they want about 300 bucks for a square shank toolholder suitable for use in a manual machine--inserts run just under 30 bucks each.

Biggest problem with stuff like that is that it's very proprietary--chances are slim that anyone else will copy that design so once you buy into the system you're committed to that manufacturer. So far most turning tools have managed to stay pretty generic but there are a lot more proprietary milling tools showing up. The geometry of a lot of the specialty stuff is really great and they can remove material at a pretty high rate (with the right machine) but it's expensive to buy in and, of course, once you're in your options for inserts are limited...

A year or so ago I purchased some Sandvik holders and inserts for some tool
life testing we ran on our chemistry.

CNMG 43X inserts were $12 a piece and the holders their DCLNR with a
1" square shank were $120 a pop.

That is really a production tool, but it was still cool to see. Back when I was
selling tooling, I had customers that would tool up for job it was easy to justify
expensive tooling based on productivity, but you have to have jobs that are
running for days on a CNC's. One of the best situations I had was in a shop
where my customer was running a job that would run 2 weeks straight out of
6 weeks. I went in there with my Sandvik rep. we spent a few hours timing
cycles and looking at tooling options. I ordered test tooling and inserts and
went in and ran the tooling at optimum production. I took is 40 parts per
hour to 210 parts per hour, IIRC. Needless to say we got the order that day
for the tooling. Within the year I had 90% of his tooling business, there were
some Kennametal Top-Notch and Iscar tooling I could not beat.
