Thread: 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.
Hi Ridgeback, welcome to the forum I'm sure someone on here will know how to get what you need.

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...hmmmNeil...
