  • We tested the form tools and they ran great at your parameters. Didn't make a peep and the surface finish is as good as our other tools . . . FYI, these speeds/feeds are about 15X faster than our old tools!

    I recently had your company do some reconditioning work on quite a few end mills and related items. So far, I am very pleased with the quality surface finishes I am getting on the wide variety of parts I manufacture. I will gladly have RTS do more reconditioning work for me as the need arises.

    RTS has proven to be a first choice supplier when it comes to the cavity reamers and drills, as well as the custom group drills. The custom ground drill that RTS did for us, the still work flawlessly.

    The good thing is that your drill bits last a long time. The bad thing is that your drill bits last a long time.

    The cutters arrived yesterday and they look like jewelry. I just finished using them and they worked flawlessly. I have not pressure tested a manifold pump in the cavity just yet but I do not expect any issues.

    I just wanted to give you a little feedback on the Tapered Reamer you guys fabricated for us. It worked perfectly. Although we don’t usually have a high demand for custom made tooling, we do occasionally require it. I will definitely be contacting you again in the future with any similar needs!
