Sinker EDM

Does anyone do or know someone who does Sinker EDM work? I need some counter bored holes burned into a hard to get at location. Back spot facing won't work either. Thanks.

Hi Jeff:
There is a shop here in Colorado Springs Co that does it. C&G Machine inc. 719-471-1935 The guy you want to talk to is Kevin Cambell No sure how big of a part he can handle but they do good work at reasonable prices, i have had him remove broken taps out of holes to save parts, might be worth a call but i would think you could find someone in Denver doing this type of work as well.

Hope it helps

A sinker EDM vs an EDM hole popper are slightly different critters and may be found in different locations.

If all you want is a hole burned or tap burned out..ask for an EDM hole popper.

If you need a shape burned...that is not small and round...that would qualify as a sinker

Companies that run Wire EDM machines almost always have a hole popper in residence.
Too many things going on to bother listing them.
