Grinding Wheels (500 suppliers)

Grinding wheels are used for metal removal, dimensioning, and finishing. They consist of an integral shank, pin, shaft, or mandrel that drives a mounted wheel or blades.

Groovers and Slotters (144 suppliers)

Groovers and slotters are tools for cutting narrow grooves or slots in a workpiece.

Hole Saws (51 suppliers)

Hole saws, also referred to as hole cutters, are saw blades with a circular cutting profile. Hole saws are used in a drill and cut out a hole without cutting up the core material. Hole saws often has a centering drill for hole placement.

Keyseat Cutters (63 suppliers)

Keyseat cutters produce a groove or slot, which serves as a seat for a complementary engagement key. They are typically used in key shafts to provide positive engagement and prevent unwanted rotation or movement. 

Knife Blades (225 suppliers)

Knife blades are sharp-edged industrial tools for shearing or cutting materials. A blade uses an edge to fracture and slice threw a material. A knife blade can be "toothed" but it still uses pressure against its edge as the primary means of cutting.

Knurling Tools (49 suppliers)

Knurling tools are used to impart a regular surface pattern on the outside of a part for gripping or aesthetic purposes. Often, the imparted pattern is diamond shaped or parallel.

Laps and Lapping Tools (55 suppliers)
