The holiday season is here. If there is a machinist in the family, get a gift that shows you appreciate them, you understand the skill it takes to do their job, and that you love them as much as they loves their tools. Here’s some gift ideas like CNC tool trays and fly cutters that you might not know about.
Supercharge Their Morning Coffee
If your machinist loves their cup of Joe as much as their HSS then get them a cup that reflects their mechanical personality. How about this take on the Genesis of Machining.
Or if they are preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse, then this mug over at Cafe Press is perfect. Just remind them to leave this cup at home. It will cause mug envy at work.
CNC Fly Cutter Set
Sure you could fall back on the reliable multi-stop, but isn’t that like giving socks? Instead, show you appreciate their sharp eye for perfection. Gift a CNC fly cutter set from The Tool Company. You get 1 ½”, 2”, and 2 ½” diameter fly cutters. They are completely balanced for stability at higher RPMs to give the performance they demand. Every Tool Company fly cutter is heat treated for long life. They won’t crap out in the middle of a job.
Get a tray for every spindle size. CNC tool trays for 30, 40, and 50 tapers sequence tools and speed set-up. It’s the gift of productivity.
CNC tool trays keep tools safe too. That’s a two-fer gift.
Easy grips handles give everyone a way to safely transport tools from storage to the work area. Not much in life is really “one size fits all” but these tool tray handles are.
Take the time to learn about their trade and learn the tools that make their lives easier. It’s a great way to say “you are important to me and what you do matters”.
Love, compassion, and respect. It’s all a great gift.
Give your machinist this gift this holiday season. Heck, remember this for their birthday too!
