Encapsulation of End Mills

The drawing, as depicted schematically in the figure, shows a method for preparing end mills so as to eliminate bending and flexing while in use.

In operation, the working end 20 of end mill 10 is encapsulated with a low- melting temperature alloy 22. The encapsulation is done so that only the working point 26 (that is, the point which actually cuts the metal) is exposed. This technique reduces the tendency to overcut a slot or groove which is being cut in a workpiece, not shown. It also keeps the material (that is, the workpiece) which is being cut from work hardening, because the tool to which the end mill is attached can maintain an effective rate of feed.
