Thank you both for the good info and site references. I ended up grabbing a pack of carbides off of eBay (from China). I checked out the rest of the cutters and it looks like they have 2 cutting surfaces left (one or two had a small chip on a corner of a carbide) so I will use this 10pack to replace any missing or damaged ones… when I get to the point of needing to rotate.
Good point on the torque wrench. The manual says a small amount of machine oil and a torque wrench. They use the oil so the coefficient of friction is consistent and the resulting torque (ultimately the preload on the screw) is consistent.
