This ½” solid carbide end mill is a double fluted, spiral up-cut bit. It has a mill diameter of 1/2 inch and a shank diameter of 1/2 inch. The length of cut is 2 inches and the overall length of the bit is 4 inches. The 1/2″ Carbide bit resists abrasion very well and can also withstand very high temperatures which allows for faster machining.
Advantages to a Carbide Bit:
- Retains cutting edge increasing efficiency over time.
- Longer working life.
- Retains hardness when machining at high temperatures which are generated by high cutting speeds.
- Resists abrasion.
