Your favorite end mill?

Post by ztil » Sun Mar 09, 2014 3:11 am

I have the stock end mill and I am finding out that I need some skinnier end mills. I see a bunch of end mills listed on ebay, but most of them are designated for pcbs - I suppose I could use them for wood, and would be grateful for a link to get one.

What is your go-to mill that you use most often (Yes, I do know that there is an end mill for every task)?

My new favourite is a Garr Tool Series 620MEDP#41030 1/8"x3x1"

I was able to find a local supplier and drop in and pay cash and pick it up when it arrived --- nice, friendly folks --- I suggest people find local machine shop suppliers and drop in and get catalogs and place orders in person.

Look for some photos of it in use on my box project soon.
