Designed for easy set-ups for end mills, ball nose end mills, drills, countersinks. The Journeyman with Toycen DC drive is 600 watts, reversible, variable speed and produces ten times the torque of the standard 1/3 HP AC induction motor (approx 5 Foot Pounds @ 1000 rpm). This eliminates tool burning by making possible heavy cuts at greatly reduced RPM cutting grinding times in half on some tools (Patents Pending 2013). This new torque compensating DC Drive System has more down tilt and swivels on the base to allow for faster alignment and positioning for grinding of countersinks, reamers, annular cutters and side and face cutters. (Toycen Industries is the licensed producer of CUTTERMASTER Professional Products).
CUTTERMASTER has sold nearly 20,000 units worldwide. Protected by US patent and copyright law, the CUTTERMASTER popular working platform and Air Spindle has not changed since the 70’s.
We thought it might be time for a shot in the arm in the engineering department, (that’s what we’re good at) so while preserving the best features of the venerable old CUTTERMASTER, and using lessons learned from the CUTTERMASTER Professional Tool Maker project we have produced the new Journeyman. The engineering changes make the 2014 Journeyman more efficient and even easier to use while in the same price bracket as the original CUTTERMASTER. The JX has a Roller Burnished Air Spindle Bushing which makes the .0005 TotalClearance float perfectly with little air loss or excess clearance to the Hard Chromed, Ground and Polished Spindle Tube which is .0001 straight in 16.75 inches
The result is the Journeyman (Model JX), the best bench top tool grinder in its class, designed by machinists and tool makers who grind tools. Download a CUTTERMASTER / DAREX / JX comparison chart
