      As I understand it?? 2 flute is for aluminum ,brass and bronze.
      four flute is for steel and harder materials??

      Well, 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
      I purchased.

      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?
