  • End mill gloat

    I have always had a problem breaking small end mills. Solved it today with 360 of them along with some punches for my roper whitney punch and some other stuff for $350
    most of them are YG and they are all under 1/8" except for some 1/2" solid carbide.

    There's the necessary picture can't remember the proper coding to make it appear in the thread.

      Very nice! And if you break them on a daily basis, you've got nearly a year's worth!

        I have a friend that thinks like you. He has a boat. Last time I was on the boat I noticed some water in the hull down below. I told him and he said he knows he needs to get a bigger bilge pump!!!!! Hello, fix the damn leak I told him.

        So maybe you need to get a better grip on speeds and feeds!!!! But having a box full of end mills is definitely a YOU SUCK moment! I am just envious.

              Nice find!
              It's not a temporary solution if you have that many of them!

                That's a serious amount of end mills! Now are they all used or are there some new ones in there? It looks to me that most of the tubes are opened, and they seem awfully long for tiny end mills.

                Like BF was alluding to, you've got a solution to a problem which doesn't exist but it should mask the one you do have brilliantly. And for a long time to come.

                I had gotten about a dozen high quality end mills for free a couple of years ago, so HSS and an equal number of carbide. I still have them all, and I think one carbide and one HSs are somewhat dull.

                    They are all new and double ended. There are about 25 extended reach units.
                    Sad story tho - my friend in the tool business finally closed down and is getting rid of what's left. I'll probably peddle quite a few of these.

                    BF side note I had the four big bilge pumps from a Navy DUKW amphibious vehicle with a 4" pipe for each driven off the engine.
                    They could take heavy water over the bow and be drained by the time for the next wave.

                    Still can't seem to get the picture to show tho.

                      KIMFAB,I don't understand your first post. I have never had a problem breaking small end mills. Anyway, nice score.

                        Knowing just a bit about the OP (from having read many of his posts here and elsewhere) I suspect he was being just a bit facetious when he said he has " always had a problem breaking small end mills".

                        Nice score, even if it was under less than great circumstances.
