We stopped over to check on the tools during the show and spend some time with Tyler Bonde who tooled up the entire job.
Tyler has been following us on Instagram for a while and he reached out to us to help show off the capabilities on the Matsuura MX850 5 axis VMC during the IMTS 2016 show. Give him a follow @tcb1228 on Instagram!
In the video, Tyler explains how he is using the Diamondback rougher that not only cuts down his cycle time, when compared to insert style end mills, but also how the tools generate a manageable chip size that doesn't clog op his chip augers. We're planning on showing off the finished part at the PRI Trade Show (Performance Racing Industry) in December 2016.
All the tools running on the Matsuura MX850 5 axis VMC at the IMTS 2016 show where using Destiny Tool End Mills.
Check out the video and be sure to give @matsuurausa a follow on Instagram!

"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.
In the history of Destiny Tool we have not had a tool promotion. This is the first.
Here's how it started.
We've had such a wonderful following on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube of customers posting their success stories with our Viper End Mills in 6061, 7075, Brass, Bronze and Copper, making Aerospace Defense, Racing components and medical products that we wanted to thank them ALL for their support with a special offer...
But then we started talking about it here at the factory...
Then we talked to with several of our regional manager's and distributors and to some machine shops...
Frankly, it just didn't seem fair to only offer some special pricing just to our loyal followers,
"We should offer it to EVERYONE and EVERYONE should thank all of our loyal followers for making this promotion happen!"
All we ask is one thing from you. Say Thank You to the people that made this promotion happen by picking one of the following:
Give them a big thank you to each of them for making this special pricing promotion happen because we can't ever thank them enough for their continued loyalty and support!

Destiny Tool Customer Profile: John Addis
John graduated from the University of Toledo with a Bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology. He also attended Wyotech, and received a certification in Automotive Technology and Chassis Fabrication. Along with that he's taken TIG welding classes at Owens Community college, and "perfected that art at home with my own machine."
According to John, "I have been building and modifying things pretty much my entire life. The past five or so years though has been dedicated mainly to Precision Rifles. I love working on guns, and my work shows it, this is more than just a job for me its also a hobby."
Area 419 is a relatively small operation right now running out of a 1500 sq.ft shop. It's just the kind of aggressive entrepreneur that we here at Destiny Tool really admire. Some of our very best customers are small shops. They're the ones who watch their dollars and take a deep dive analysis into cycle times and efficiency. They do their research and they optimize their tools.
Small machine shops make up over 80% of the metalcutting machining industry. They are some of the most innovative people we meet. They think out of the box. They always preface a conversation about speeds & feeds with "I'm just a small shop, I don't want to take up a lot of your time" but they almost always have done their research and are the people with their sleeves rolled up, mopping the floor up from coolant, talking to a customer on the phone and watching our end mills rough out material. We love small shops!
Small Shops are what makes us strong. Small shops are what makes us innovate. If you get a be sure to check out John's website and what he does. Support a small machine shop near you!
