How often should we send our cutters in to be sharpened?
A: As soon as you notice the cutter is not making the tap in a timely manner. A sharpened cutter will cut faster with less strain on the equipment.
Should a cutter ever be used with broken tips?
A: This is never a good idea. Something could go wrong during the cutting process. The tap could fail costing time, money or injury.
Can our cutters be rebuilt if the teeth are broken?
A: Yes. This is more affordable than buying new ones.
Should we send our pilot bits in along with our cutters to be sharpened?
A: Yes. Pilot bits start the cut. Keep your pilot bits in good condition so as not to lose your coupons.
Do you only sharpen hot tapping tools?
