As one example Speedy metal has 1/2” x 36” square 1018 CR for $13.64. That is enough to make 3 tools, you mentiond AZ Carbide for the cutters and making your own handles is a fun project. I have yet to counter bore to set the cutter, I leave it rest on the bar and have NO problem with it turning, etc. A copper 1” fitting for a ferrule and you are all set. You can make 6 tools your self for what the big boys sell theirs for.
Go man go!
