Cutwel have partnered with some of the world leaders in tooling technology such as YG-1, Korloy, Gerardi, WTO, Benz, Bison, Mitutoyo, Insize, Vardex and much more to bring you a comprehensive range of tooling at competitive prices!
Milling Tools were the first products we ever sold and over 20 years later our range has grown to one of the best in the UK today!
Our solid HSS, Powder Metal and Carbide Milling cutters offer a comprehensive selection for all materials and applications. So whether your are machining stainless steel on a manual machine or a complex exotic material on a high end CNC machine we have the right milling cutter for you.
For larger diameters or heavy metal removal then please see our indexable milling range which incorporate carbide inserts that are most cost effective when machining larger areas.
Hole Making Tools
Machining a hole sounds simple, right? But with many possibilities available, it can be difficult. However, we have designed our ranges to ensure an easy decision making process to get the right tool for the job!
Our range of solid HSS, Carbide and Powder Metal twist drills are available from economy level up to ultra-high performance and are generally used for smaller holes. Our range of HSS and carbide reamers then complement these to provide the perfectly machined hole to a specific tolerance.
For those larger holes, you should take a look at our indexable range of drills such as Korloy's King Drill U-Drill system or the YG-1 Supercut Spade Drill. The modular boring systems from Teknik and Dinox are also a popular choice for large diameter bores.
Whether you are turning or boring, thread turning or knurling, grooving or parting or anything else you can do on a lathe for that matter, then we have you covered!
Cutwel has one of the most extensive selection of lathe tools on the market. If you can think of an application, it's likely that we will have a solution for you. Our range of turning inserts covers all standard ISO shapes and sizes (and beyond), with turning tool holders and boring bars in various clamping styles to suit from Korloy and Teknik.
For other applications, we have a huge range of multifunctional tools from Korloy and Simtek, which can perform various tasks like grooving, parting, thread turning and copying using a single tool! We also have our very popular parting blades and blocks, as well as a selection of cut and form knurling tools to achieve all common knurl profiles. On top of this, we have the Simcut range of broaching tools (to DIN6885 standard) for lathes and driven tools.
Threading can often be the last operation to finish a job, and as such can be an incredibly precise and stressful process, as one small issue can ruin everything. Our comprehensive ranges aim to alleviates these concerns.
Cutwel supply a high quality range of machine taps from YG-1 and UFS and also hand taps from YG-1, UFS & Presto, with both types of taps are available for all major thread forms and applications. Our range of machine taps include Metric, UNF/UNC, BSP(G), BSPT, NPT, Thread Repair, Trapezoidal and much more. We also have a selection of high performance material-specific taps for those trickier jobs or to achieve the optimum results.
Our wide range of indexable single point threading holders & inserts from Korloy and Vardex are for internal & external threading on a lathe. We also supply Italian-made thread mills (both solid and indexable) if you want to achieve a better quality thread as well as split, solid and hexagon dies and diestocks for conventional threading.
Cutwel has the UK's LARGEST range of spindle tooling for all common tapers like BT MAS, DIN69871, DIN2080, PSC Capto, HSK and more.

Using the correct Tool holders for your application can not only increase the performance of your tooling, but also drastically increase the tool life too. Incorrect or lower quality tool holders may cause vibration, damage your tool and poor performance. Luckily, Cutwel is on hand to supply the right tool holder for the job. From standard collet chucks and end mill holders for your everyday application to high performance HPH chucks, synchro tap chucks and shrink fit chucks for optimum performance. All this because quality tooling NEED quality tool holders!
