I got 10 of these little buggers (5x 6mm Carbide CNC Router Bits Single Flute Tools 25mm) (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/140548881261?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649) and now realise I actually need a mixture, I need some wood working 3mm end tools if anyone wants to do a swap if they have some 4 3 flute 3mm TC end mills (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tungsten-Solid-Carbide-End-Mill-4-Flute-3mm-Diameter-Endmill-Milling-/121026426686?pt=UK_BOI_Metalworking_Milling_Weldin g_Metalworking_Supplies_ET&hash=item1c2dbcb73e) please PM me.

Thought I had a spare box of 3mm bits but they are 2mm. Oh well it was worth a look.

I've got 10 1/8", 12mm CEL, single flute cutters if that's any use? What's the exchange rate?

For wood 3-4 flute isn't going to work very well compared to 1-2fl. Particularly for such small cutters, where there's not much room for the swarf, I prefer to use single flute.

I only have a 3mm / 5-6mm and 6-7mm collets Goblin so thanks for the offer :)

They are perfect Jonathan, I want to keep 3 so that leaves 7 2 for Jazz I think so I have five left, If you have some 3mm shank 2mm single flutes ( does CEL mean Carbide?) we could mix and match. 50 / 10 so 5 each, it was free postage. So what youpaid for yours to the same amount cost wise from me ? Does that make sense lol ? I'm shit with money tbh :( I can get them in the post in the morning Jonathan if you send me a PM with addy. You see I like swaps much better than cash sales, no money transactions the old bartering system..

CEL=Cutting edge length. They are carbide.

Not especially since we can get the 6mm single flute cutters here for about 3.42 each (http://www.aliexpress.com/item/10pcs-6-22MM-Single-Flute-CNC-Milling-Tools-Engraving-Cutters-Wood-Carving-Bits-Drill-Blade-for/570139669.html), so I would only be prepared to swap if you consider yours worth that much. I don't have any 2mm single flute cutters - only 3.175mm, 4mm, 6mm and 8mm.
