The Wimberley Toolholder - More  

The inexpensive high speed steel tool bit is easy to sharpen. The toolholder's built-in back and side rake allow for efficient cutting in a variety of materials including steel and aluminum. Facing and turning can be accomplished with the holder in one orientation. This ensures that a very sharp edge is always just a few minutes and cents away.

Free samples are available to those in positions of high visibility such as authors published in The Home Shop Machinist or similar magazines.

Wimberley HSS lathe Tool holder

Wimberley Toolholder ($59.00)   

"Regular cuts, facing, and turning to a shoulder, were all accomplished to my high satisfaction, all without changing the orientation of the cutter. This is superb!"
 -Glenn M. Schultz

"No resetting the tool block. No regrinding for a chip breaker. No fancy edge re-sharping angles for the edge grind. I personally think you have a winner."  
-Herbert Yohe

"Grind two facets, set the length and height, and start cutting. For the novice or experienced pro this tool will do a great job. Perhaps my highest recommendation is that I will buy others."  
-C. H. Sherin

More - About Us

Wimberley, Inc. is located in Charlottesville, Virginia and is owned by David Wimberley and his son Clay. We strive to make high-quality, innovative products and to provide exceptional customer support.

Wimberley, Inc. is known as a a maker of innovative photographic products, particularly tripod heads for big telephoto lenses. David started the business but Clay is the principal designer of the current line of photographic gear. David is at a bit of a disadvantage in the photographic arena because he is not a photographer. On the other hand, he is an amateur machinist and routinely employees his skills as a machinist in the service of the company.

The toolholder arose out of David's frustration with various types of lathe tooling. David had used conventionally sharpened high speed steel bits, brazed carbide bits, carbide insert tooling, and the Diamond Toolholder. As an long time tinkerer, David thought he could come up with a better toolholder. David made and tested many versions of the toolholder. Eventually he settled on the current design and geometry.

Bringing this toolholder from conception to the marketplace has been a labor of love for David. He hopes that the toolholder and the upcoming DVD will make it easier for beginners to understand tool bit geometry, successfully create and maintain their high speed steel cutting edges, and use those edges to create accurate and attractively finished parts. He hopes that professional machinists in nonproduction environments will appreciate the ease of sharpening and cutting performance of the toolholder, as well as its compatibility with quick-change tool posts. He hopes that machinist of all stripes will enjoy the toolholder is much as he does.

Thank you for your interest in our products, and may the swarf be with you.
