Here's a terrible picture of a cheap finishing tool set up. Basically a boring bar holder with a two flute end mill with the bottom flute set at an angle and positioned at the center of the work, like a shear tool. I cant believe how well it works.

Now THAT'S an ingenious way of thinking outside the box and using what you have on hand to get the job done.

Might wear the end of the mill making it cut funny when plunge milling, but still back behind the corner so it shouldn't affect the cutter at all for any other type of milling.

Gonna have to try it myself just to see what kind of finish I can get with it.

I use end mills as boring tools all the time. They don't go very deep but are rigid as heck.

I've done that too along with using old broken taps for mini boring bars and recess tools after grinding off all of the teeth except for the lead one.

Never thought of using an end mill as a shave or shear tool though.

I Like It.
