Acknowledging that you only get what you pay for! Is there a budget source of down cut spiral carbide two flute cutters? Cutting hardwood and Depron.

Hi

I asked the same question a few weeks ago:

http://www.mycncuk.com/threads/9395-Where-to-source-HHS-Downcut-end-mills


I found some here:
http://www.wealdentool.com/acatalog/Online_Catalogue_Down_Cut_228.html

I ended up buying from this place in germany (15 postage mind):
http://cnc-plus.de/en/End-Mills-266/2-Flute-down-cut-275/Carbide-down-cut-2-Flute-Router-bit--left-hand-spiral-end-mill-2977.html

Just got round to trying them out and they worked great for the 3mm Dibond I was cutting.

Cheers,
Jim

Jim - Thanks for info. Have used Wealden for a while now. But CNC+ seem like good prices even with the shipping. Ordered a 3 off 3mm d/cut carbides to try.
Thanks again
