R & J Tool, incorporated in 1997, started as a small machine tool job shop during the early 1980's in the Lakes Region of central New Hampshire.
The concept of insert sharpening was always in the back of the mind of owner, Robert Laflamme. Bob, as Tool Design Engineer for a major ball bearing manufacturer, had tried "regrinds". He kept a mental list of all the reasons they didn't work and the ways he could improve the art. Over the course of several years, R & J Tool's insert sharpening was developed and eventually patented in 1999.
