Web reference link 1: "Tool wear is undoubtedly one of the biggest threats to automotive component production. With this in mind, a familiar practice at automotive part shops is to change tools before maximum tool life is reached, just in case; the cost of disposing of an insert before it is fully spent is far less than enduring a catastrophic insert failure."
