Insert length

So...I recently downloaded the fsWizard.
Liked it so much I downloaded FsWizard Pro!

I use this app to help determine speeds and feeds when turning.
What is meant by "insert length"? Is this the insert size?
For example, I've been using .5 when using a half inch insert.

Sorry, i totally missed your question.
The insert length is currently considered the length of the cutting edge.

This is not an ideal description of a turning tool. So we are working on better terminology and modeling.

Best regards.

May I suggest using the terminology"I.C." or "inner circle".
This would describe the robustness of an insert without getting into manufacture carbide grade. Having a cross reference of carbide grade would be awesome as well!
