Hiya, Could anyone recommend suppliers of LONG cutters for 3D work... That is to say cutters in excess of 76mm total length..

In a perfect world, a long hogging cutter and long 8mm twin flute ball nose (possibly a 6mm too)

I have some Titman 76mm length ones at the moment which can deal with 50mm material/depth easily..... (12mm Hogging and 8mm ball nose)
Anybody else used the hogging cutters? they are awesome! like a hot knife through butter!)

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Cheers

Hiya Jonathan, MDF currently (although it would have to be bonded over 50mm). I want to try some proper modelling material!? something I have not bought/dealt with yet..

Thanks, they look good and are much cheaper than the Titman ones.

I will try some asap!
