Where to find cutting tools for CNC machining

List of manufacturers of cutting tools (bits)

We supply these links to assist all (potential) DeskProto users in selecting their optimal system configuration. Next to that we trust that these links on CNC milling will prove to be a useful source of information for many others as well. For each listing we absolutely do not pretend any completeness: many more suppliers of valuable products do exist. So do not feel offended not to be listed: please feel free to email any updates, suggestions and/or remarks to

Cutting tools

Most suppliers of CNC milling machines do not include cutting tools: you have to add these yourself. Typically for freeform surfaces you need a ballnose cutter, while for roughing and for more rectangular geometry a flat cutter (end-mill) is better suited. Best quality are carbide tools, for light material you can also use the cheaper HSS material. Try local sources as well: easy for a quick delivery.
