I would like to pass on a BIG thanks to Paul and Vanessa at Carbide Tools. I recently had the challenge of modifying a large set of production dies that are located abroad from our office in New Zealand. I made a drawing of a profile cutter that would allow the machine shop abroad to make the modification to each die in just two cuts using a manual mill. When I presented the idea to Paul and Vanessa they were only too happy to help me out. Within no time Paul had worked out how to make the profile cutter work with the depth of cut and swarf clearance needed to make this work smoothly. I put the cutter through it’s paces in NZ before sending it abroad, who got the same excellent results-nice clean cut with a smooth finish and the chip clearance worked well. Regards Josh

I recently had a job to do where I was cutting 304 stainless Steel. For this particular job I decided to use a tool manufacture by Carbide Tools Ltd. I used a 6mm 4 Flute R0.5 “Quick Feed” Tungsten Carbide taking a .5mm depth of cut. I was able to reduce my machining time from 13 minutes per component to 3.5 minutes increasing my productivity by 73% leaving an exceptional finish on the final machined product.
