Title: Endmill sharpening (flute)
Post by: Doc on April 24, 2017, 01:23:26 PM
 I am thinking about sharpening some end mills before I swing into full summer mode. I know there was some interest last time and am wondering if there is any interest yet. If there is some interest I would set up a tripod and video the sharpening from start to finish. If not no big deal as there is a short video of my process. I'd like to start next winter with no dull tools.
Anyway I just thought I'd mention it.

Sounds good. I have dull ones from 5mm to about 25 mm MT3 taper endmills. I haven't tried to sharpen any of them yet.

I'm interested.

Ok here is yesterday morning. The camera battery died as I was getting ready to do the first endmill. I did notice it when it shut down so I stopped. I have not gotten back to it but will continue from where I left off.
