I have a customer who can take whatever standard drills you like (including some of the less expensive ones), cut them short, and then put better than new points on them, all for (IMHO) very reasonable prices, and with delivery times that are typically around a week, for real.
Take a look at http://www.awddrills.com, and try a call to the phone number you find there. Tell 'em I sent you.
Hope this helps.
Hello all, we have been using standard length solid carbide thru
coolant drills for some time now, with excellent results. 90% of what
we use them for is production drilling 2024 AL, in OIL, with a
ChipBlaster pushing 1500 psi through them. Works great.
Only problem is all sizes larger than .1875" are problematic in that
they are too long in overall length for us. I have checked at least 5
manufacturers. I am about to have them made up from scratch to a stub
length, for a considerably higher cost, from Specialty Tool.
Kennametal and others will shorten drills off the shelf for the same
price and lead time as making up specials from scratch.
Anybody know of a manufacturer that stocks stub lengths? I cannot
find them anywhere. I need sizes up to 1/2" diameter, with an overall
length no longer than 3".
