    Default Mill tools

    Newer to the field, my current workplace is looking into buying a new mill. I am curious if anyone has input as to good companies for tooling, especially any that might offer a basic package to get going. Mainly concerned with holders / collets, we have a fair number of bits and things, but would like to hear all input to help make some decisions.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thread might get locked for non-descriptive title.

    That being said, the one company I know for sure does a new machine tool package program is SECO. In my experience their mill tools are mostly all bulletproof also. I don't remember the details of the program they run though. I've got the number of a great rep here in MI if you're interested in speaking to him.

    I'm sure most of the big companies will run some sort of promo for tooling up a new machine.

    I will make sure to give more info in title next time. It would be great to have contact for a good rep in Michigan.

    Consider keeping it in the family...give MariTool a look.

    The gent who started the company is a frequent contributor here, tooling is very good quality and priced right.

    No affiliation, just a happy customer and fellow contributor.

    Yes, I believe they offer starter packages.

    Most of the holders and collets we buy are from Pioneer. I can't think of any problems with their tools that weren't operator induced.

    Welcome to Pioneer!

    Might help to know what kind of mill you're getting, what spindle taper it has, and what kinds of parts you intend to make from what materials.

    Most tooling companies will have a cert for a new machine purchase. best thing is to have a discussion with your machine tool sales rep and discuss with him abou it. He or she may have a suggestion based on experience and the best bang for for the buck.

    everyone will tell you what or who they have used in the past and i could tell you to contact a sales rep from my employer(Ingersoll cutting tools) but i am not, that's up to you.

    If this is a new venture for your company and you are not working with a distributor, find one and have this discussion with them too.
