    What are guys using for a fly cutter on MX machines?

    Looks like a shell mill is in my future. What are guys using that have had good luck, and what should be avoided?

    Thanks,

    S.

    For aluminum, the ripper face mill is awesome.

    How funny that the only guys in the thread are from Austin?!

    Ripper mill looks pretty cool. What size are you running?

    I ran a 2" on. my Torus Pro for 2 years before I got the Brother. Makes a great surface finish on aluminum. I've been using it on the brother for over a year. Still on the original inserts. It's a good cutter for low HP machines. The sharp polished inserts keep the cutting forces low for good stability.
