Improved Tooling

Since 2000 Great Lakes Custom Tool Mfg., Inc. has manufactured the Great-Loc® SG Universal Style Tool System. Today we also offer the Gib Style SG Mini Cutter. This new cutter has many of the same advantages as the original SG System such as:

  • • Economical
  • • Eliminates the need for dedicated tool bodies
  • • Able to run multiple profiles in the same cutter with the same cutting width
  • • Optically inspected precision ground inserts

In addition to the above benefits, the Gib Style SG Mini Cutter is smaller in diameter and is commonly used on small shapers and door production machines. T-bushings can be used to change the bore from 1-1/4" down to either 1" or ¾".
