Would you mind posting your tool set up with feeds and speeds and depth of cuts. Did you use any coolant or air?
Thanks,
Dave

1/4 amana spiral O flute bit
45 ipm
Each pass at .0394 or 1 mm
Total cut of .45"

I used both coolant and air
I used wd-40 as coolant and also used a portable blower since it remove all the chips perfectly and the bit never recut the chips, and at the end of the cut the bit was really cold.
