Choosing the right end mill is a must for any serious machining work. Having the correct end mill helps to determine the quality, accuracy, and time of a finished part. Investing in a premium cnc end mill at the beginning can save money in the long run, by completing jobs quicker and being tolerant to more abuse.
We have searched high and low for a quality supplier at affordable prices. Our ball end mills are manufactured from sub micron grain solid carbide using the latest material technology.

See the diagram below to correlate the dimensions. The dimension Reach is only applicable to the extended reach end mills, as for the stub and standard end mills the reach is the same as the cut length. Also if the Cut Diameter and the Shank Diameter are the same then the Reach dimension also isn’t of much concern, even for the extended reach end mills. 1/4″ cut mill is not available in the extended reach version.
