Corner Radius End Mills and Soft Jaw Profiles

.003 corner rad on a .250 carbide endmill.
Up sharp carbide end mills do not and never will make "zero" corners.
All nice in the computer. Not real world.
This is why the good Lord came up with undercuts or backtapers.
Put one under a microscope and lock and you will see CarbideBob is 100% right.
