Here are some of the videos that where shared with us by our customers this year on instagram. Take a look and give them a follow!
A former music teacher, Andrew started Henry Holsters in Indiana in 2008, Henry Holsters are thermoformed plastic holsters that combine careful design work with robust materials and painstaking attention to detail.
They make their holster out of Boltaron 4332 sheet material for all their holsters, as they prefer the workability and feel of Boltaron over Kydex.
Most importantly, they use Destiny Tool end mills to make their top-of-the-line holsters! Andrew started following us with his instagram account a few years ago and we've been following his progress right back.
Their shop uses state of the art Brother CNC milling machines and vacuum forming machines to produce holster shells which are then hand finished and assembled.
We visited Andrew at his shop earlier this month and got to spend some time with this fully self taught machinist and manufacturing innovator. Give Andrew a follow on instagram! He posts some rather nice instructive videos there: @henryholsters
Area 419 has been posting some great images and application information on their facebook page on how they are using our Destiny End mills. Here's some really excellent footage of the Raptor DVH in action!
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.

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!

TACTICAL G-CODE is a great YouTube resource channel with 17,403 subscribers and over 1,521,000 views. If you haven't checked it out their channel you go on over and subscribe!
According to their YouTube profile, TACTICAL G-CODE
"With my channel I want to show how I make my custom rounds and my testing with them. When asked, why I do make these rounds, my answers are WHY NOT, OR BECAUSE I CAN. In addition to the stuff I make. I want to bring the firearms and other related items, that are off the beaten path guns, ammo, and products/company that you may have never heard of before. And the stuff you have heard of you won't find alot of videos about it on other youtube channels."
The below video was uploaded on November 24, 2010 to demosntrate Truemill software.
According to Tactical G-Code: "More testing with a Haas SMM and Viper endmill. This time we concentrated on a pocket workpiece instead of a contoured outside. LIke many of our other videos, the spindle load was set to 101%, but it never reached that point. The truemill cycle reached a max of 91% toward the end when it got really fast."

The Pocketing starts around the 3 minute mark!
What is TRUEMill?
TRUEMill is quantum leap in CAM toolpath technology. A TRUEMill toolpath controls the tool’s engagement in the material being cut to maximize the material removal rate (MRR). TRUEMill allows a cut that is both faster and deeper than any other 2 & 3 axis roughing toolpath on the market today. TRUEMill’s effectiveness and speed is especially evident in difficult or exotic materials such as titanium, inconel and hard steels.
TRUEMill’s superior toolpath is not dependant on the geometry to be milled, so no guesswork is required to see which pocketing routine is best. TRUEMill toolpaths have proven to increase material removal rates by up to 10X and increase tool life anywhere from 30% to 100% while at the same time decreasing cycle times and reducing the stress on CNC machines.
Here's a video from Calvin Witt, one of our customers....
According to Calvin... "For those of you who have the 7075 steering arms on your cars, or seen them on RC Crawler you know how they look. This is a glimpse into how they are being made with an older model HAAS VF-1 and a Destiny Tool Diamondback rougher at my job when im off."
"Surface finish is good enough to not warrant a finish pass which dramatically reduces cycle times on these parts. Though your results may vary depending on acceptable surface finish qualities."
