The latest addition to the Tiny Tool line—the multitask CMR—allows users to bore, turn, face and chamfer with a single tool. The cutting geometry permits machining without the need for a pilot hole, thereby saving the time and expense of an entire operation.

Designed with a vertical coolant hole and a spiral flute, the CMR continually evacuates chips out of the hole during machining. The CMR Tiny Tool not only shortens machine cycle time but, thanks to the variety of operations it performs, it saves money on tooling, the company says.
