End Mill 1/4" Shank....1/8"

Ball End Tapered 1/4" Shank....1/16"
Ball End Tapered 1/4" Shank....1/8"
Ball End Tapered 1/4" Shank....1/4

I like precise Bits. They have quality cutters and lots of information on their website.

Cutting Tool Source has high quality AMERICAN MADE cutters and are great to do business with.

They have a support site for CNC Machining with a lot of information, articles and calculators.

www.use-enco is really good to do business with. Fast shipping and quality import and American cutters and machining supplies.
www.use-enco.com

A supplier that I have placed one order with has really good prices at least on extension collets.
http://www.dzsalesllc.com
I could not believe their price for a 1/2" shank ER-11 Collet extension. I have given $65.00 for one from Enco and thought with their 15% discount
and free shipping that it was a really good deal. Then along comes DZSALES and their price is $21.00 and is on sale for $ 13.50.
At that price, I had to order another one. I cut the extension off to 2.5" long and insert it in my router in place of a 1/2" shank cutter. Then I get an
ER-11 collet for 1/8" shank cutters. I use a lot of 1/8" solid carbide end mills in my comet. It is just like cutting parts out with a 1/8" saw blade
except you can cut around a corner and the cutters are much less expensive.

I order ER-11 Collets and 1/8" flat and 1/8" Ball Solid Carbide End mills on E-BAY from SolarJean for about $2.00 each. He has free shipping from China and I usually get an order within a week. He sends an email when he gets the order, when it is shipped and sometimes another one before shipping. All payments are through PayPal.
It is what it is!
Have a great day.
HANNAH
