    Just thinking about the spot drill. I have a few chipped single flute 6mm mills. I wonder how one of them would do reground to 90Deg?

    Can't see a problem if ground well.? I couldn't belive the results with TC spot drill so if you have the abilty to grind your own then should get great results.

    Just make sure whatever you use is ground to a sharp point. Some spot drills still have a web so you need to be careful.

    I tend to regrind my 6mm single flute cutters back into the same cutter. Something useful to do whilst the router is running.
