Davis Keyseater Tooling

Using the multiple tooth cutter principle, the Davis Keyseater is the fastest cutting, most precise, and easiest to operate keyseater on the market.

Hansford Parts And Products manufactures and stocks standard English and Metric sizes of cutters and bushings for use on all Davis Keyseaters. They are designed and manufactured to exacting specifications to obtain the highest efficiency from Davis Keyseater Machines. Radius cutters, angle cutters and cutters made to sizes and/or lengths other than standard, as well as special size bushings are available upon request. Hansford Parts And Products also provides a cutter re-sharpening service. Standard sizes available from our stock are listed on following pages.

AF Cutters

Series AF Cutters are designed with side clearance, a 10° rake angle, and a relief angle for the higher speeds and feeds demanded by automatic cutting. They are accurately hardened and ground to provide optimum cutting efficiency and better finishes.

AFS Cutters

Series AFS Cutters are AF type cutters with a staggered tooth configuration. They cut more efficiently and do not load with chips when cutting keyways over 5″ long which are 1/2″ in size or larger. In many cases, they eliminate the need to take a pilot cut.

Cutter Sets

The DA17 sets cover the keyway size range from 1/16″ to 3/4″, and the DA-18 sets cover the range from 7/8″to 1-1/2″. Cutter sets are recommended for applications where the size of keyways to be cut cannot be predetermined upon purchase of a DAVIS KEYSEATER machine. Metric size cutters are also offered in sets.
