Tools that can cut anything. Even time.
Cut costs, save money—it’s the continual battle. So you look for less expensive tooling options, which may or may not be the answer in the long run. But what if the solution wasn’t a cheaper tool, but rather a better process? That’s the first step in the Sharon-Cutwell® approach. Over the past 70 years, we’ve seen virtually every conceivable tooling application. And rather than simply providing the tool you think you want, we’ll suggest process changes to help you reduce your manufacturing cycle times and deliver greater throughput. Then we’ll design the best tool for that process. You may call it a tool. We call them time machines.
Our roots run deep.
Today’s state-of-the-art, custom cutting tool business started in 1945 as a tool sharpening vendor to some of the biggest manufacturers in southeastern Wisconsin. Quality, reliability, accuracy and timely delivery continue to make Sharon-Cutwell a trusted business partner. Whether you need a specialized, one-of-a-kind solution or an ongoing cutting tool program precisely timed to your manufacturing program needs, do it right—do it Cutwell.
Patented* WAVE-POINT® Technology.
Sharon-Cutwell® developed WAVE-POINT Technology to solve the drilling challenges inherent to highly engineered carbon fiber composites. The study of the cutting process including hole quality, tolerances and tool life led to its innovative design, founded on a unique tool tip configuration that doesn’t simply cut carbon fiber, but rather carves the material in order to eliminate delamination. This dramatically minimizes exit burrs.
WAVE-POINT Technology—coupled with an exclusive diamond coating—enables higher operating speeds and longer tool life. All of which help cut time out of manufacturing processes.

What do you need your cutting tool to do?
That should be the first question your cutting tool supplier asks you. Today, designing and manufacturing cutting tools for metalworking, woodworking and specialized composite materials is becoming increasingly complex. Challenging materials, intricate geometries, multiple component sizes and specialized needs require a partner with the engineering talent and equipment to solve difficult projects. Our cutting tools solve unique manufacturing problems by transferring complexity from the job to the tool. If we know what you want to do or the problems you seek to avoid, we can design a solution that meet all critical criteria. The result is precise and consistent cutting tool performance with exceptional tool life. All of which ultimately saves time and money.
Sharon-Cutwell® is heavily invested in the newest CNC technology, precision measuring devices and 3-D design software. More important, our associates possess the knowledge, skill and dedication to craft unique cutting tools to exacting specifications. With an average employee tenure of more than 12 years, you can trust the quality and performance of Cutwell metalworking tools.
We craft our cutting tools in solid carbide, brazed carbide/steel and high-speed steel in both non-coolant and coolant-through configurations. A broad range of coating options is available to meet specific performance expectations.
To manufacture the best products, start with cutting tools worthy of your reputation.
You manufacture parts that need to be milled, drilled, reamed or routed. It’s not just a product—it’s your reputation. That’s why some of the world’s leading manufacturers rely on Sharon-Cutwell®. We manufacture, service, and sharpen, the highest quality cutting tools to meet the most demanding metal cutting, composite and wood cutting applications. The tools we craft are designed to perform specialized and sometimes complicated functions. Our design team will dive deep into details about what you need the tool to do and create a cutting tool solution that will maximize tool life and quality. We will then guide you on how to apply the solution. We pair your vision with our expertise to design the optimal cutting tool for the application.
Don’t settle for a job. Hone a career at Cutwell®.
“We understand that it is the combination of tool performance, tool value and superior customer service that defines success in our business.”
