LMT Onsrud From the Very Beginning...

 Our Roots 

Our roots were established within Libertyville, Illinois with an initial product offering of high-speed steel router bits, milling cutters, and carbide tipped tools and over the next 65 years of producing high quality tooling, we have seen our customer requirements grow and expand.



 Our Tools 

Current tooling lines range from our starting point of engineered panel applications which developed into plastic and composite machining for the marine and aircraft industries. Our latest endmills are utilized to mill aluminum and exotic metals within today’s aerospace, defense, medical industries as well as other technical applications, while our special solid carbide drills are designed to cut composites, titanium and other non-ferrous materials.


 Our Pride 

We take pride in manufacturing tooling for CNC Routers / CNC Mills in addition to electric and air routers. Aluminum, composites, plastics, honeycomb, exotic metals, natural and man-made materials - LMT Onsrud has a solution.

  Our Team

In 1999, LMT Onsrud became part of the LMT Group and December of 2010, we relocated to our new 64,000 square foot facility located in Waukegan, IL. Onsrud began producing router bits in 1946 and we believe our tools provide to our demanding customers the performance, tight tolerances, and quality they would expect in a tool. We ask that you give us the opportunity to demonstrate it.
