    Mhajicek: Are you using with coolant or without? Maybe a stupid question since it's coolant through, maybe could use air through? I'm not setup for either but wondering. These little 3/8" buggers might be worth a try. I don't have air blow on my machine. Been using coolant with steel.

    I haven't used them yet, I thought of it too late for the job and finished the job with a bull endmill. Figured I'd get them for next time. I do have 1000PSI TSC, mostly cutting Ti. I do have spindle air blast if I need it for carbon steels.

    Helical Tool
    What am I missing cause that says $161 each. I can get Walter and Iscar modular tips for much less than that

    Interesting, 'cause when I was looking around the tips were well over $100 each. The non-TSC ones are cheaper:

    High Feed End Mills - Steels up to 45 Rc - Variable Pitch - Reduced Neck

    What's a 3/8" modular tip go for?

    A Walter 3/8" shows $55 each but I'd imagine the price would be better with quantity. It's not through coolant though.

    I missed the TSC part. Have you tried a non through tool but with a holder that directs the TSC at the tool? Or blowing it through a collet or milling chuck collet?

    That would probably work well for most cases, I do it a lot with other cutters. The tip price seems to have come down a lot since I last looked into them a number of years ago.

    $55 That's more like it. I did look at the Helical one and the one w/o tsc is closer to $100. Still, $100+ for a 3/8 endmill? They better really last! Maybe I'll look into them. 3/8" would do me pretty well for some of my parts.
