About Whitney Tool Company
Whitney Tool is recognized as a leading manufacturer of Woodruff style slotting and keyseat milling cutters, as well as Counterbores, Counterbore pilots, T-Slot, dovetail and other specialty milling cutters including combined drills and countersinks.

In addition, we manufacture the Burr-Zit™ and Handi-Burr™ de-burring tools. Burr-Zit™ is the original clothespin type deburring tool that can de-burr both sides of a drilled, punched or reamed hole in one operation, even when only one side is accessible.

While our standard product line will continue to grow in response to our customers’ need for fast delivery of top quality cutters, we will also continue to be the industry leader in the manufacture of custom-made cutting tools. We make a variety of custom-made shank type and arbor type milling cutters in high speed steel, cobalt, carbide tipped and solid carbide. We also do our own heat treating, which gives us maximum control over the quality and scheduling of our cutters. For your convenience, use the quote request form on the facing page.
