    Yes, I own a set of the 15mm - 36mm aliexpress puppies. No issues, nice clean cuts.

    Never used them, but the nature of how carbide is machined means that there's a certain amount of built-in accuracy.

    With the HSS stuff, you can just shove (more or less) a grinding wheel through it and call it a day, but because carbide is brittle and the diamond wheels used to grind it are kinda fragile, you have to have to be much more careful.
