Case Histories

Phillips Head Screwdriver
A machine tool builder supplied special horizontal machines to produce various steel Phillips head screwdriver heads from varying diameter steel hex stock.
  • Required to hollow mill varying diameter, varying lengths and chamfer from diameter to hex O.D.
  • Also required to produce combined 26° and 18° Phillips point on end to center line.
THE SOLUTION:
Genesee designed special inserted blade hollow mills to accept three different details of blades to produce all part sizes.
  • Two brazed carbide blades turn hollow mill diameter and chamfer to bar stock size while two precision match ground premium T-15 HSS blades produce the two angles comprising the Phillips point.
Convertible Snap Ring Pliers
Genesee standard hollow mill with four different details of blades provides the four different sizes of tips on the ends of convertible snap pliers produced by a major manufacturer of hand tools.
