View Full Version : NEW MEMBER: Hi from Warrington

I have a CNC machine made by Keyline of Italy specfically for cutting car keys to code.
I recently acquired a new jaw that uses a different mill end cutter as per picture.
Whilst calibrating it for the first time I managed to snap the cutter.
Ordered another from my supplier, 64.00 plus VAT, yep 64 plus VAT.
Keyline charge a premium for their cutters, the 2.5mm mill end is around 50 plus, but I managed to source a better cutter from Taiwan for $17.00.
I have scoured the internet for an alternative source of these 1.5mm cutters, someone somewhere must be using a similar cutter.
A number of suppliers have email back, but none have managed to offer a 1.5mm 3 flute on a 6mm shank.
I'd appreciate any pointers as who is likely to stock these, even if its a solid shank, I can grind it flat to fit.

Best Regards

Hi and welcome to the forum....I've had a quick look on 'tinternet and can see 2 flute and 4 flute with a 6mm shank (that would need cutting down and a flat grinding on them as they're 60mm long.....) but not 3 flute...hmmm
