View Full Version : Milling cutter needed

06-16-2008, 08:16 AM
i need to make some shafts that have splines on both ends. I've searched and searched for "spline cutters" and found nothing. Whats that damn cutter called? How do I determine the size that I need? And finally are they sold in differant variations like gear cutters are 1-8? Metric vs english?

Thanks for the input. I was looking more for a list of differant sizes and styles to make my selection from. This would be from measurements taken from an existing one that I have for comparison

They are for the most part ground to order. Meaning you specify what you want to the cutter grinder and he takes a blank and grinds on for your needs.
