- Build a Tool
Our goal is to show cost savings while maintaining a high accuracy rate. Whether it’s Gorilla Mills®, or other variable end mills, standard end mills, Gorilla Drills or any other high performance drills, CGC/ Gorilla Mill has over 40 years of knowledge and experience to help your bottom line.
The vast majority of your tooling that CGC/Gorilla Mill or anyone else manufactures can be re-sharpened and recoated to “like new” condition on one of our state-of-the-art CNC tool and cutter grinders at a fraction of a new tool’s cost. At CGC/ Gorilla Mill, our goal is to show cost savings while maintaining a high accuracy rate.
How do you pack a gorilla for a trip? If your gorilla is a CGC end mill heading back to CGC for regrinding, you pack it in our proprietary monkey grinding box. This heavy-duty, mini crate with interior padding is perfect for protecting your end mills in transit. Simply request the box from us. Then all you’ve got to do is place your end mills inside and close the box using the built-in fasteners. We also recommend you wrap the box with a fiber tape for secure shipping.
Once your package arrives at our facility, we will sort out what we can, and cannot repair. Once sorted, you will receive a Quote within two (2) business days. After a P.O. is sent to us, we will send out an acknowledgment and the grinding process will begin. There is a 3-4 week lead time once the P.O. has been received.
PLEASE NOTE: Regrinds sent to CGC/Gorilla Mill must include contact name, email, and distributer enclosed. Tools need to be dipped, tubed, or bundled tightly. Packages must not exceed 30 lbs. Larger orders may need to be shipped in multiple boxes. No packing peanuts. If we do not receive a P.O. 60 days after a quote was sent out, or any of the above criteria are not met, CGC/Gorilla Mill reserves the right to return the tools at the customer’s expense.
Tools without specific regrinding directions can be expected to have a ground Flute Polish, OD, End-face, and then Coated. Special quality or grinding requests will be quoted specially.
Tools deemed as past repair will be returned to the customer.
After we’ve reground your mills, we’ll ship them back to you in the same secure package. Keep the crate to reuse for your next re-grind order.
We will not regrind the following:
