K.O. Lee Company

In 1888, Knute Oscar Lee registered K.O. Lee Company and started his journey towards selling farm parts and equipment. Clifford Carl Lee, a son of K.O. Lee, was introduced in the business later.

Today, K.O. Lee is one of the leading manufacturers of universal cutter grinders worldwide as well as surface grinders and expanding mandrels as well as parts.

LeBlond and kolee

Today K.O. Lee is a machine line under the LeBlond umbrella. While K.O. Lee is well-known today for selling tool cutter grinders and surface grinders, the parent company is known for selling OEM parts for legacy LeBlond equipment as well as new machinery.

From LeBlond machines such as drill presses, band saws, lathes, and mills to KO Lee machines, our parent company has every equipment you need for your exact machine tool needs.
