What do you guys do?

Cougar makes specialty carbide cutting tools to blueprint standards for manufacturing/production environments. We also do modifications, resharpening/regrinds, inspections, and laser marking services.

Can you make hand drill bits?

Cougar doesn't condone our tools for use in hand tools like drills. The nature of carbide makes tools in hand drills prone to snapping.

Wow, this quote looks good! How do I place an order?

All orders and requests for order acknowledgments should be submitted to sales@cougarct.com. On the purchase order, please include shipping address, phone number, company name, and shipment method.

What is the overship/overshipment policy?

All orders are subject to 10% over/under on the quantity of the tools, unless specified on the purchase order. For example, if you ordered 15 tools, you would receive 1 additional tool over or under the quantity ordered. We charge 10% of the order total for exact quantity, due to inherent risks of scrapping tools.
