We specialize in manufacturing carbide-tipped, solid carbide, and high speed steel coolant-feed reamers in standard and special designs for precision hole-finishing.
Standard cutting diameter tolerances are maintained within +.00015"/-.00015" unless otherwise specified.
In addition to our standard design right-hand spiral/right-hand cut reamers, we offer the following special flute configurations:
- Straight flute
- Left-hand spiral/right-hand cut

Our experienced sales engineers will work with you to determine the flute configuration that best meets your production requirements.
All of our reamers are manufactured to provide ease of set-up and operation. We can provide you with reamers capable of extended life, reamers that will produce an exceptionally high finish (minimizing the need for secondary operations), or a reamer which will give you a quality finish and provide you with long tool life. In addition, Proto-Cutter reamers eliminate chatter, and other problems associated with conventional reamers.

Why choose Proto-Cutter?
Important reasons to select Proto-Cutter:
Superior product design features produce unsurpassed performance - Our reamers include established design features that minimize friction, harmonic chatter, and galling to increase the performance and extend the life of your reamers.
These design features include
Coolant-feed reamers lubricate and cool the cutting edges and provide exceptional chip disposal, resulting in increased productivity, longer tool life and lower tool costs.
The coolant-feed feature of Proto-Cutter reamers produces maximum chip-flushing action and is designed for use in blind-hole and through-hole reaming.
In blind-hole reaming, chip flushing and cooling are achieved simultneously. The coolant is fed through the reamer body, hits the end of the blind hole and is forced back through the flutes.
