Buying And Using A Tool And Cutter Grinder In Thailand
This is the Tool and Cutter grinder I bought from Sam at All Arm Co Ltd in Bangkok, Thailand.
The three accessories in front of the machine are, left to right, drill sharpener, end mill attachment and lathe tool sharpening attachment. To the far right (in front of the lathe tool sharpening attachment) is one of the R8 collets.
Be Careful With AllArm Co!
I paid 34,000 plus VAT for that tool and cutter grinder.
When I got the machine home I found that it was a used machine with pieces missing.
I had a long ongoing dispute with Sam at AllArm Co and suffice to say I recommend everyone to steer clear.
I also had a comment from someone else trying to do business with AllArm Co and he too had a bad experience dealing with Sam – so it’s not just me.
This latter conversion can be found here:-
I had a quote from RDG Tools in the UK and the accessories were about the same but the carriage to Thailand was ridiculous. Please note that the machine is VERY heavy. I can lift it off the table by myself but I could’t lift it say from the floor to a bench on my own. Must weigh around 60+ kg.
I have a lot more information on about this machine – if you are interested please leave a comment below.
