3mm ball mill, what dia shank do you need?

I'm trying to keep them all at the same shank if possible, so 6mm would be good but I will go with what is available do you have 3mm end bit on a 6 mm shank as well prof ? :)

That would be fantastic :) Prof can you just ring them and order tools ? I thought you had to have an account or something thats why I did'nt bother buy direct from them?

I am not sure if you can just phone up an order, I have an account with them.

I guess all you can do is phone up and ask.
