Indexable Cutting Tool Reconditioning

Let GKI be Your One Stop for All Your Cutting Tool Needs!

Since 1971 GKI has serviced thousands of companies throughout North America. Today, nearly every Fortune 500 manufacturing company relies on GKI for quality tooling and reconditioning services.

Over the years we  have developed our own line of Aluma-Rippa end mills, and the Schnell drill.  The Aluma-Rippa is used for ripping through soft metals and non-metallics. With high-positive rake inserts and polished flutes for easy chip flow, there are 5 sizes available starting at just $99.00. Our Schnell drills are priced from $149.00 -- check out the standard diameters we build at

Whether you are interested in our cost-saving indexable tool repair service, or our full line of cutting tools, our highly trained staff and nation-wide support network are ready to serve you. We'll even work with you to improve your tooling, including recommending changes that will increase tool performance and life. Results are guaranteed if we recommend a tool change. If it doesn't work, you don't pay!
