    Hi everyone. I'm fairly new to cnc woodwork and am working with an ooznest workbee to make mainly machine reliefs. I was looking in Aliexpress and there's a lot of very cheap end mills - but perhaps rubbish I don't know.
    Has anyone had any luck sourcing end mills this way that could point me at a reliable & affordable supplier?
    I'm mainly looking for my most frequently breaking one: 1/16 " carbide ball nose
    Thanks,
    Rob

    Look on ebay.co.uk for item number 182739548952 sold by "rennie_tool"
    These are solid carbide 2 flute spiral ballnose, good price, cut well in hardwood, long lasting, available in all sizes and lengths.
    I use the long reach 6mm ones quite a bit, look in their shop for other shapes and sizes.
