This end mill cuts nice large chips in aluminum and evacuates them very well. Being new to hobby machining, I have been learning the hard way about chip welding and clogging. This tool is almost dummy proof. As far as the tools affinity to aluminum, it has out performed my Titanium Diboride coated tools when cutting 1/4'" deep slots with no air blast or cooling. (Depth of cut was not 1/4" but the slot was never cleaned for final cut and the tool collected no build up on the cutting edge.) I could not be more pleased with this purchase.
This one is a beast! 11mm DOC in Poplar wood at 1500mm/min crazy town!
