The Company


The Leading Edge is a family owned and operated business.  Al Rose started the company in the mid-1980's with the customers' needs in mind.  He built The Leading Edge on the premise that the name wouldn't be a misnomer, always striving to make things last longer, cut faster and finish better.


The Leading Edge is a Moldmaker and Aerospace Distributor. 

We sell a complete line of solid carbide end mills, indexable tooling for cutting graphite for EDM electrodes; PCD brazed inserts, CVD and PVD coated end mills with long reach for cutting ribs and stub flutes for point-to-point profiling applications.  Our company strives to supply the latest technology with high feed solid carbide, high feed indexable end mills and face mills.  We also offer the most extensive line of variable flute solid carbide end mills with axial depths up to 2 times the diameter. 

We take pride in having a cutting tool to meet your every material need.
