WeekendMiniaturist Posted September 16, 2015 Share Posted September 16, 2015 I want to purchase some end mills. I am overwhelmed by all of the options. Do I need 2 flutes or 4 flutes?There are multiple brands, like hertel, interstate, osg, kyocero Carbide, HSS, CobaltCNCCentering and the confusion here continues. Elga & Niels mentioned the small mills break easily - just looking at them, and Niels I don't think CNC milling is in my near future, as I am assuming that a programmer doesn't come with the machine. Call me when I can talk to the computer and the computer creates the program based upon my verbal request. The goal is to have some stuff on hand for future use, so that when I am in the "zone" generally in the evenings or weekends, that I don't have to stop to go get an order from my local Grainger or MSC store. I would want to use for woodworking and perhaps metal working.Currently, I have a taig lathe and Unimat DB200 that I can use as a lathe or mill. Your recommendations and comments are appreciated.
