    Tool for milling V groove

    Hello guys,
    can someone recommend me some tool for ER20 for milling V groove into aluminium 5083.
    I need to mill deeper 120° in few passes and do not want to flip material in angle.
    I have only chamfer, I assume that it is not ideal tool for it, I would appreciate any picture what should I look for...

    thank you

    Re: Tool for milling V groove

    What angle of vee ?
    Can you put the part at an angle, and use a standard tool ?
    ... ie set at 45° and use an end mill for a 90° vee.
    ... same idea but use a dovetail cutter for 30° or 60°.
    ... use a taper tool, made to the required vee angle. Problem with this is the point goes to 0°, so feeds will be slow, ie about 0.001/rev

    Rough pic would be nice

    They sell mill drills with this point angle, feed would be VERY slow, but no need to re fixture

    Thanks for advices.
    Its just flat material and need V groove 120° without rotating on vice.
    Drill mill suits my needs, but what I have found, that these drill mills
    are all made in USA ? They are little bit pricy. Cannot find some seller in Europe...
    Does anyone know some seller in Europe ?
