I have worked with Paul (Machining Resources) for 7 plus years now. He has been successful on numerous occasions to find unique tooling for special applications in both high and low volume production and regularly provides top quality tooling at economical prices and reasonable lead times. If it is new tooling, something existing that is hard to find or I need to reduce cost on existing tooling, he is one of the first places I turn. Great guy and willing to do anything he can to find the best solution for your problem.

Good Afternoon, Paul.

I have had the new threading bars in production for two days now. We have run the 6 and 7 TPI  parts. The finish is beautiful and on the plus side the number of thread passes has been reduced by 30-35% across the board. The tool wear is looking great even after 300+ pieces. At this point I am going to let the machine run and monitor tool life and performance before proceeding with any additional programming changes.  I'm very impressed with the work you and your team have done to get this tooling to me in the time frame that you guys did.  I look forward to working with you and your team on future projects. I am visiting Murata again in December and I will be letting them know you guys definitely know what your doing when it comes to special tooling.
