Best used for: Standard milling, dadoing, and boring.
Up-cut endmills direct woodchips up and away from the milling area leaving an unobstructed path for the endmill. Bit breakage is less likely. Up cut end mills are the best choice for most standard millling applications. The up cut direction can leave behind a minimally rough top surface edge.
Pros: Quick and efficient milling, chip removal.
Cons: Can cause minimal top surface edge roughness or tear-away.
(Choose a down cut spiral bit for projects that require smooth top surface edges.)
For use in CNC milling and carving machines.
