Wetmore Tool and Engineering of Chino, California, has been acquired by Dormer Pramet, global manufacturer of cutting tool brands Precision Twist Drill, Dormer, Union Butterfield and Pramet.

Founded over 60 years ago, Wetmore specializes in the supply of precision cutting tools, including handheld skin drilling applications used by several aerospace organizations.

The company’s program of high-quality tooling combined with a customer-focused market approach makes the company an excellent fit both strategically and culturally with Dormer Pramet,” says the acquirer.


  • Machining Dry Is Worth A Try

    Reducing cutting fluid use offers the chance for considerable cost savings. Tool life may even improve.

  • Choose The Best Drill Point Geometry

    The more common twist drill point geometries often are not the best for the job at hand. By choosing the best point for the material being drilled, it is possible to achieve better tool life, hole geometry, precision, and productivity.

  • Rigid Tapping--Sometimes You Need A Little Float

    One of the most common methods of tapping in use today on CNC machines is 'rigid tapping' or 'synchronous feed tapping.' A rigid tapping cycle synchronizes the machine spindle rotation and feed to match a specific thread pitch. Since the feed into the hole is synchronized, in theory a solid holder without any tension-compression can be used.
