    End Mills

    Hi guys
    Does anyone know of any suppliers of 1/16 2 flute end mills in australia.
    At the moment im getting them from here http://stores.ebay.com.au/CARBIDE-PL...id=p4340.l2563 This guy is very good , & very happy with service & prices. Im just asking as a backup just incase this ebay store happens to drop off the radar ( Always plan ahead )
    Cheers.

    The last time I ordered from Virt Village the bits were totally innappropriate for the job, but it may have been me.

    Rich, which ones do you order through that shop?
    Cheers

    Hi Dave
    I built my own cnc, I'm using an ozito router/ trimmer which is 1/4 collet
    I use 1/8-1/4 bushing for the end mills, found a place in Sydney that sells them, at work at the mo, but if your interested in those bushings I can give you the link later
    Cheers

    Dave
    Heres the link to the bushing/collet its item number JL-271, If you do decide to order some might be good idea to phone them as its a massive store that sells all weired & wonderful things, (make sure it is in stock) Ive never ordered online though them , just gone to shop direct , but a fair trek for me to go. Ive found i am able to cut the bushings in half with a hacksaw so you can use 1 for 2 end mills also allows you to insert end mill further into router , so less chance of runout/wobble. http://www.mcjing.com.au/searchresul...=collet&page=2 on a side note the other place i mentioned in usa ebay. I ordered some more 1/16 bits yesterday & they were posted last night UPS so service with him is very good, hope all this helps.
    Good Luck
    Rich.
