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:
- Tools that are heavily damaged
- Tools below 50% of the original LOC
- Tools below 10% of the original Diameter
