Perform a variety of tasks with these drill mills, including slotting, side profiling, chamfering, spotting, countersinking, and cutting grooves. They have a nose with a pointed tip that allows them to drill holes or create angled features in a workpiece.
In general, end mills with more flutes allow a higher feed rate, while end mills with fewer flutes permit faster chip clearance. For best results, choose the shortest end mill that will work for your application.
High Speed Steel
Versatile high speed steel end mills are the most common choice for general-purpose machining applications because they are typically compatible with a wide range of materials, including steel and nonferrous metals.
Bright (Uncoated) — High Speed Steel
Solid carbide end mills provide good wear resistance when milling the toughest materials, such as cast iron and nonferrous alloys, but they require rigid tool setups because they are brittle.
