Pneumatic chamfering tool

Online sellers are flooding the market with cheap hand held pneumatic chamfer tools. They look like they might be useful for "rough and tumble" fab work. My question is does anyone sell replacement carbide inserts for these
Here is what I posted in another thread about these:
I worked at a place that had a nice small handheld one you just ran around the edges to be chamfered. It had a longish aluminum vee block with a die grinder in the center. IIRC the die grinder held a 1/4" 4 flute mill cutter. You could adjust the depth of the chamfer. It looked similar to the one EG posted but small.
edit to add:
It was very similar to this one, only 25 yrs ago, lots of pics in the add:
That was post #3 in this thread, these are great for straight lines and small chamfers:
I did, but from what I have been told, the inserts do not like cutting anything but aluminum. I was hoping I could process sheared edges on A-36 plate quickly
I got one of these a couple months ago and they work great on steel. I’ve used it quite a bit since I’ve got it and the blades are still sharp on the original edge. Kinda loud
