    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 ? :)

  6. 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.
