large or small of expert toomakers.
Recently we have designed custom automotive cylinder booring for NASCAR high performance engine builders. Our Hardened Carbide booring, cutting and milling tips give those engine builders the precise specification cuts each and everytime. Additional industries we serve with our custom build carbide tools are in aerospace -airlines -transportation -medical/dental and prototyping job shops.
Samples of our custom made Carbide Ball cutters for boring and porting out NASCAR engine cylinders. Carbide tools for precision metal working from engine blocks to industrial punch press form tooling applications all use SFS Carbide Tool, Inc.

Tungsten carbide PCB tools are smaller now than ever before, and seem to be getting smaller every year. To meet this challenge, SFS Carbide cutting tools are fabricated exclusively from the advanced tungsten carbide composites developed and supplied by domestic and foreign suppliers. Ultra-fine grain cemented ceramics are the result of an extensive development program aimed at optimizing the very best of cemented carbide technology to achieve an exceptional combination of hardness, toughness, and strength for demanding cutting jobs. These extraordinary properties have been achieved by producing tungsten carbide with a grain size of only 0.4 micron. We select grades of carbide to accommodate the application at hand from precision dental drills to industrial reamers. Generally speaking, the need for reliable small hole drilling and the accompanying demand for extended tool life has necessitated the use of the finest grades of carbide currently available. The bulk of our tools are fabricated from 8UF (with 8% cobalt) and 6UF (with 6% cobalt) which are recommended for solid carbide rotary tool applications in the ISO K01/K0 and K01/K5 ranges where high cutting speeds are routinely encountered.
All of our drill bits, reamers, routers and cutting tools are produced on Rollamatic multi-axis CNC grinding machines and are fully inspected using the latest laser and/or optical metrology techniques. Drill diameters are held to +0.0000"/-0.0004", end mill and router diameters to +0.000"/-0.001", overall tool lengths to 0.005", and depth set ring locations to 0.004". Tighter tolerances and custom geometries are available upon request as no job is too large or small for our tool making specialists.
