I recently had a milling cutter priced for sharpening locally and it was £18 plus vat. It is 125ml long but it seems a lot?
I was just wondering if there is anywhere mail order?

Paul....there is a gentleman called Geoff Josey who advertises on the Home Workshop site who sharpens end mills and slot drills. Not only does he do a fantastic job of them but he charges an unbelievable £1 each plus postage....he will ask you to make the cheque payable to a hospice. Thoroughly recommended and very speedy service from a true gentleman........which reminds me, I must send off another batch to him.
His email address is ......... g.josey@sky.com
 
Regards
Mick

I've found the add for Goeff Josey and he sharpens cutters up to a maximum of 16mm unfortunately mine is 3/4 with a 5/8 shank.

Hi There
5/8 is less than 16mm.
Perhaps he is limited to shank size so he could do it.
regards David

I've sent him an e-mail David. I'm hoping he goes on shank size rather than cutter size.

I've been in touch with Geoff Josey and he only sharpens the ends.

​I've just received back today 10 HSS cutters that Geoff has re-sharpened for me this week from 1/4" -3/8" & 6mm - 16mm. I can say what a fine job he has done & quickly too. He still does cutter sharpening to this day & as for cost ... extremely cost effective...£16 for 10 cutters. I sent a PO for the amount made out to himself & he made out a check to his hospice choice, or as above, a cheque made out to the charity. I can thoroughly recommend his service should anyone need cutters sharpening, just e- mail him at ... g.josey@sky.com

George.

I have the equipment to properly grind both the ends and flutes of end mills. Unfortunately I am in the US so it is impractical for me to offer services. Were I closer to you I would propose a mill sharpening party where you bring your cutters plus pizza and beer. Maybe you can find a member in the UK that is properly equipped and willing to do a similar thing.

I think you will find the industrial sharpening services expensive unless you have a large number of identical mills to sharpen.
