Mini Cutting Broaches

Postby Lindsay G » Thu Feb 07, 2019 1:33 am

Does anyone know of a source for individual or multiple purchases of really small cutting broaches in the region of .2-.4mm. Some sets come with such tiny broaches (and I succeeded in breaking my final small one tonight).

Squires do a lovely bundle of small broaches designed to fit into pin vices, or whatever, but they're way too big for what I'm after.

A simple online search also turned up Meadows and Passmores site, with individual broaches;

Clockmaking suppliers seem the best option.

Last time I tried to buy something from Cousins they were "trade only"

I just ticked their "other" box with "private use" on the classification page and had no trouble buying stuff from them. Came the following day!

if Cousin's won't play ball, then their competitors Cooksongold may have something suitable.
