6 High Speed Milling Cutters for $3 ?

Post by janapriya » Fri Mar 07, 2014 11:39 pm

I came across this from a deal site, could this be used with Shapeoko? Please note I have no connection with meritline.com. Bought some stuff from them that's all :D

I have a feeling that the results you would get from those cutters would be undesirable, but hey, for $3 why not give it a try.

These look similar to the Dremel bits you can buy. Whilst not a pro yet at the whole Shapeoko thing, I have some of those and when you look at how the mills are constructed and how sharp they are... I don't think that this is where you want to be. Check out the Drillman1 on eBay. He has excellent prices and the bits are really nice. I bought a nice start up selection. Now, to throw a disclaimer, this is still an early opinion though as I have only had time to use a couple. But others on the forum really like Drillman1's stuff, and it is on the recommended list of recommended recommendations.

The bits from Drillman1 are excellent.
I use them almost exclusively (I have a great v bit with a replaceable cutter from amana tool)
You cant go wrong with the 1/8" two flute end mill. Be sure to get the UP cutting bits NOT the down cutting ones.

Thanks guys. I ordered these anyways since it is $3. Worst case I will use them with my Dremel.

Thanks for the pointer on recommended bits! He is already in my fav ebay seller list :-).

How is it worded on the auctions? I see references to center cut but nothing about up or down.

Just look at the photo.

If the twist is such that when spinning clockwise it pulls material out the hole, then that's the one you want.
