Maybe I have been snoozing, but in the latest Carbide Create I noticed .063 and .031 end and ball mills listed in the tool library. I have the Dewalt DWP611 in my Shapeoko 3 and have never seen a smaller collet than .125" . Are these for the Nomad?
I believe the shaft for these bits is .125, so you would use that collet.
Duh, I feel kinda dumb now. Where would you find these? And thanks for the reply.
Carbide 3D sells one: https://shop.carbide3d.com/collections/tools/products/precision-collet-and-nut-for-dewalt-dwp611
as does Elaire Corp.: http://www.elairecorp.com/dewaltroutercollets.html#dwpanchor
and there’s the nifty ER-style version which Precise Bits sells:
Some folks use reducing collets, but that’s an unnecessary additional part to my mind.
I apologize for being unclear. I have a 1/8" collet, but I have never seen the end mills in these sizes with a 1/8" shank. Again, sorry for the confusion.
If you live in the US, the eBay seller drillman1 is quite popular. I have been happy with the bits I have purchased from him.
I don’t think I’ve seen endmills with a shank smaller than 1/8"… I really can’t imagine how a 1/32 endmill with a 1/32 shank would even be stable.
