I almost exclusively cut wood, mostly pine and oak, with some sugar maple and cedar thrown in to the mix. I’ve been using the C3D 201 for my main cuts (leveling, cutouts, pockets) but it’s about time to replace the three I started with. I picked up a couple of 1/4" 2 flute endmills from Drillman1 which are a little bit longer, 1 1/8", to use as backups, but I really want to replace my 3 flute 201s.
Now, given the claim that the spektra lasts 2.5 times longer than standard, it would make sense to get them. Is there any quantitative proof of that, or are the Amana Tools Spektras all just hype? What’s your experience with them?
Additionally… 2 flute vs 3 flute for wood, does it make a difference?
