Ripping on some 4140 today for a new rigid chamber reamer block. If you haven't tried Destiny Tool Raptor DVH end mills yet, you are missing out! I had to crank my feed up to 170% to get it where it wanted to be. 0.3" depth, 0.1" width, 80ipm or so.

Harry Moser from the Reshoring Initiative stopped by our IMTS 2016 booth to talk about the progress of reshoring manufacturing to North American shores.
Reshoring is the practice of bringing manufacturing and services back to the U.S. from overseas. It’s a fast and efficient way to strengthen the U.S. economy because it helps balance the trade and budget deficits, reduces unemployment by creating good, well-paying manufacturing jobs, and fosters a skilled workforce. Reshoring also benefits manufacturing companies by reducing the total cost of their products, improving balance sheets, and making product innovations more effective.
The Reshoring Initiative is focused on helping companies shift collective thinking from “offshoring is cheaper” to “local reduces the total cost of ownership.”
Harry explained how small contract manufacturing shops can use his Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Calculator, for free, to convince their customers to keep the existing machining on our shores. He suggested asking your customers:
"Is there anything you are thinking about moving off shore, or better yet, is there anything you are getting from off-shore where you are having delivery issues, quality issues, intellectual property issues, travel, too much late night telephone calls, anything that is causing you pain,... and how can we take away the pain?"
We also talked about how small machine shops can innovate more as more machining business reshores. At Destiny Tool we believe that reshoring stimulates even more new innovation and, candidly, helps us innovate new products and solutions because of our customers feedback about machining.
Here's the video below. We hope you find it helpful in growing your business.
Harry Moser & The Reshoring Initiative
Harry Moser founded the Reshoring Initiative in 2010 to bring manufacturing jobs back to the U.S. Prior to the starting the Initiative, he held leadership positions at GF Machining Solutions, formerly known as GF AgieCharmilles, where he began in 1985 as the company’s president and retired in 2010 as Chairman Emeritus.
Harry's reshoring efforts have been widely recognized. In 2010, he was inducted into the Industry Week Manufacturing Hall of Fame and was named Quality Magazine’s Quality Professional of the year in 2012.
Harry has actively participated in President Obama’s Insourcing Forum at the White House in January 2012. He also won The Economist debate in January 2013 on outsourcing and offshoring, and received the Manufacturing Leadership Council’s Industry Advocacy Award in 2014.

"Driven to Perform: Odenthal Manufacturing" written by Sean Burr
Coeur d’Alene, Idaho is not really on anyone’s radar as being a hotbed of manufacturing, but it should be. This lakeside resort community is a jewel in the Idaho panhandle with skiing and boating the main attractions. In a city of 60,000 people Forbes lists it inside their top twenty plac- es for small business and careers. It’s also where David Oden- thal grew up, started racing, and built his machining business.
Odenthal Manufacturing came about through David’s love of racing go karts and his dad’s automotive machining back- ground. “Growing up my brother and I raced karts,” explains David. “Dad had an automotive machining business in the local area and spent every penny he made putting my brother and I through racing. He wasn’t married so it was what we did together. We traveled all over the country on what was considered to be a small racing budget.”
After graduating high school in 1986 David attended Northern Idaho College’s two year vocational machine tech program. After graduating in 1988 he got a job with MSM Design making various types of film equipment including IMAX cameras. That is where he got his first shot at designing. “Marty Mueller was my mentor and gave me a shot at designing a brand new film magazine” said David. He had a skill and love for both racing and making things, so in 1992 Keith Odenthal sold his automotive machine shop, teamed up with David, and Odenthal Manufacturing was born. Their first product was the Odenthal Racing Products engine mount for go karts.
The International Manufacturing Technology Show is one of the largest industrial trade shows in the world, featuring more than 2,000 exhibiting companies and 114,147 registrants. The event is held every two years in September at McCormick Place, Chicago. The 2016 Show runs from September 12 - 17.
Destiny Tool will be in Booth W-2092 which is located in the Tooling and Workholding Pavilion in the West Building of McCormick Place for IMTS 2016.
We've been reposting and sharing both Instagram postings and YouTube videos of your applications for some time and for IMTS 2016 we want to take it one step farther. For the 2016 IMTS show we would like to showcase the parts that you have made with our tools.
From now until August 31, we will be accepting applications from shops to be part of our display at IMTS 2016. We will feature a part made with our tools as well as an informational table tent that would include your shop's logo, City, State and/or Country as well as your website address so other attendees can take a look at your capabilities. We would also need some specific cutting data as to which tools were used and how.
In the meantime, please be sure to use the #DestinyTool hashtag as well as the #IwannaBeOnIMTStv hashtag when posting our products. The folks at IMTS 2016 have a competition going on to see where the most interesting products are located at the show and then do an interview in the booths that qualify. This could be a great opportunity for us to talk about YOUR company and part applications!

Destiny Tool product data now available for download to your CAD, CAM, & ERP system in ISO 13399, GTC format via MachiningCloud
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 18, 2016 ― MachiningCloud, an Industry 4.0 solution provider helping customers make better tooling decisions, is proud to announce the immediate availability of Destiny Tool, a supplier of high performance end mills for use in non-ferrous and high temperature alloys, on the MachiningCloud App.
Destiny Tool’s customers can now find Destiny’s product data on MachiningCloud, eliminating the need to search through printed catalogs, telephone calls and multiple websites to find optimal tooling. By using ISO13399 and GTC, the Destiny Tool product data residing on MachiningCloud is also easily imported into any shop software supporting these standards.
ISO 13399 is an international standard for the digital representation of cutting tool data. GTC (Generic Tool Catalog) is a complement to ISO 13399 for vendor neutral classification of cutting tools and data file structures.
For cutting tool manufacturers who do not have an ISO/GTC catalog, MachiningCloud provides the service to map their data into the standards and publish it on the Cloud. In addition, any cutting tool catalog that is already in ISO/GTC format may be easily loaded onto MachiningCloud. As a result, in both cases, always up-to-date cutting tool product data is available to everyone. The result is significant time savings and optimal tooling choices for customers when searching, selecting and sharing cutting tools for jobs; and when building assemblies and exporting the tooling data to CAD/CAM, ERP and other shop software.
