Precision Carbide Cutting Tools


Custom tooling and Post-sales Support for all our customers is a top priority at SFS Carbide Tool Company Inc. We pride ourselves in providing industrial machine tooling solutions, since 1921, to a variety of manufacturers and job shops from our Michigan Headquarters. Because of meeting your needs our business continues to grow!

Our vision is to make the name SFS Carbide Tool Co. synonymous with the phrase “easy to do business with” making us a leader in manufacturing “application specific” solid carbide cutting tools since 1921. We worked side by side with the world’s leading flatbed plotter manufacturers to develop this unique series of vinyl cutter knife blades. For high speed machining of hardened metals or when you need only the best cutting tools, think of one name: SFS Carbide Tool Company.


Over 90 years ago we were established in Detroit Michigan by Heller Brothers File Company of Ohio to service the automotive, aircraft and light or heavy manufacturing industry in re-sharpening metal working hand files. Detroit was picked because it was the central manufacturing hub for the “Big Three” automotive production plants with support of other manufacturers including Tool & Die, Die and Mold, and General Machining.

As the USA manufacturing industry expanded and adopted new technologies so did SFS Carbide Tool. In the early 1950’s, we expanded into making machining cutting tools for the automotive and aircraft industry. These included not only the “Big Three” and their tier auto parts manufacturing suppliers, but also the “Aero Space” and ever expanding airplane manufacturing industries.

A new company named “MISCO” (Michigan Investment Steel Casting Company) was started in Detroit and has continued to expand alongside SFS Carbide Tool for over nine decades. We continue to service the tooling needs of major companies in the Aircraft, Automotive, Precision Machining, Graphics signage, NASCAR and performance engine building industries worldwide.


We manufacture a variety of taper tools with small tip diameters and various degrees of taper to open air way passages on trailing edges of turbine blades and vanes. The tip diameters could be as small as 0.010. Special end mills with special geometry are also used for CNC machining jobs.

We make carbide burrs, end mills, drills, step drills, reamers, and multi-diameter step tools, both solid and coolant fed. Please provide us with a blueprint or detail sketch to quote your requirements. A complete resharpening service is also available. We can sharpen dull cutters regardless of the manufacturer. This is an excellent and efficient way to get new tool performance at a fraction of the cost.


SFS Carbide Tool, Inc. is completely dedicated to producing the finest quality solid carbide cutting and machining tools at a competitive price. Another primary goal is to help reduce your overall tooling costs. Leverage our 90 years experience manufacturing tooling to meet or exceed our customers’ expectations with respect to quality, cost and delivery.
