Did you try calling MSC? Hertel is one of their house brands.

You have to be a business to order from them. They want your tax id before allowing a look at there prices

After calling MSc I found out that Hertel discontinued that face mill and quantity of inserts low. The only ones left are $34 each - even with a 25% discount that’s to rich for me. I can return beautiful face-mill sadly
Any one have suggestions for a facemill and inserts that don’t break the bank.

There's a handy insert designation chart at http://www.carbidedepot.com/formulas-insert-d.htm

In short XD.. is just specifying the shape and clearance angle, but leaving the tolerance and chipbreaker/mounting hole unspecified. The tolerance doesn't really matter, but usually the chipbreaker/mounting hole has to be one of 2-3 different options.

FWIW, carbidedepot.com has Kennametal XDMT inserts for about $15/insert in packs of 5. Dunno if the T hole+chipbreaker will work with your facemill, but it seems to be a likely candidate.

I have a small 3 insert face mill that takes 1135 inserts. They measure approx. 6 mm wide x 11 mm high x 3.5 mm thick with a 2.5 mm screw. I get them from Aliexpress for approx. $20 for ten. I have an X2 mini mill and I find that the aluminium cutting inserts give me a very good finish in steel compared to the steel specific inserts as I can only take light cuts with this mill. The ones I bought were Mitsubishi "branded" but perform very well on my small, bendy, loose, toy. Have chipped a few in harder metal but you can change to the steel specific inserts (cheaper). Hope this helps,
John.
