Subject: [mill_drill] End mill questionWell, cutting tool question I guess, ball end, radius, etc.
2 flute verses 4 flute. I tend to buy and use 4 flute cutters
exclusively. I have 2 flute end mills but only because they came in sets
So I guess the question is why 2 flute? When would a 2 flute end mill be
preferable to use over a 4 flute end mill? Or does it come down to cost?
