Default How big a face mill can a Millrite MVI handle?

what kinds have people used, and how well did the face mills work?


You get what you pay for. One cadilac is the sandvik R390 3" face mill. Big
$ and worth every cent. These inserts run best without coolant - they put
the heat in the chip.


They look nice. Where are they sold?

What about the R245?

The Sandvik Coromont website seems too complicated for its own good, but
very good-looking.
