I am looking for some help and hope sombody has the solution. I have a horizontal milling machine and I need some of the cutters sharpened. The problem is I can not find any one to do this. anyone know of a good (or even not so good at this point) shop that can sharpen these bits.

Sorry I will try to find out how to add the part of planet location to my profile. I am from eastern Pennsylvania.

Yep, we have a place on Tong Street in Bradford West Yorkshire, Expensive but good.

Some of your fellow HSMs have grinders and may be able to as well.

it would help to know what corner of the planet you;re in - most guys put an approximate location in the profile and we like having a sense of where people are from.

It would help if we knew where you are located.

Circlip, I just now noticed your claim that Yorkshire is the centre of the known universe, yet I know a lot of folks who claim that Dallas, Texas is the center of the known universe. Could it be that the universe is elliptical, and has two centers?

Yes, it helps to know where you are. The center of the known universe is where you are at a given time. Peter

Anyone that thinks Dallas is the center of the universe hasn't spent enough time there!

The center of the known universe follows my cat everywhere. He believes he is the center of all alternative universes, too.

Here's a place in the center of the known south that does sharpening:

John,that`s because a lot of people who live in Dallas think that is the universe.
Unfortunately.

Dallas is a little too close to Jokelahoma for my tastes...

The center of the universe is the point at which the big bang originated. Unfortunately, that point has expanded with the universe and is now everywhere.

Well said Ian.

Perhaps those places had their origin in the core of what may be mistaken for what may be confused with a (Yorkshire?/UK?) black pudding, which similarly may seem to have emanated from, and may yet return to, another truly big black hole.

PS - mathematically, an ellipse has two foci, but the "Draftsman's ellipse" has four centres and four arcs (and I can't find the method on Google).

Perhaps the loci/foci are the sources of the apparent black puddings

That will make a world of difference to your mill and the cutters.

Why not ask at some of your local shops that have horizontal mills - or even vertical mills - or any using any form of form/special tools that need specialist sharpening? Most will know of or use a Tool & Cutter grinder "in house" or will send them out to a specialist.

And I'm sure that they won't know horizontal milling cutters as "bits".

Dallas used to be the center of the universe until it got filled up with rude folks from the northeast and west coast. Now, Dallas is just conveniently located near Texas :)

Back to the real topic, can anyone point to a 'how to article' on sharpening tool bits?? I just need to know how to put a proper edge on a bit for a flycutter.

Thanks,
Jacque

Hi, Can't get in to the shop now. Fire Station Construction Grant application due on Thursday. Helping the Chief get-er-done.
Be Safe.

there is/was a place called The Tool Shop around cinnaminson NJ that did a lot of carbide grinding for a former employer of mine. Never dealt with them directly but I can vouch for their quality.

Sorry for the non return pgp, about 15 miles, an O eye Tiffe, Blackpudding is a Lancashire concoption used mainly over there as hardcore for constructing roads.
