End mills:
Carbide micro-end mills are essential for cutting a clean channel. It is advisable to purchase the end mills in pairs. You won't want to be caught without a back up. I stock the following sizes (I recommend using end mills that are 0.10mm smaller than your purfling):

1.00mm      .040"     $32/pair

1.10mm     .043"     $32/pair

1.20mm     .047"     $32/pair

1.30mm     .051"     $32/pair

1.40mm     .055"     $32/pair

1.50mm     .059"     $32/pair

1.59mm     .062" (1/16")     $32/pair

1.97mm     .062" (1/16")     $39/pair

2.39mm     .094" (3/32")     $39/pair

2.77mm     .109" (7/64")     $39/pair

1/8" ball end mill for setting the depth of the recurve after the purfling is in (spare not necessary).      $21.50 each


Foredom Sets:
The preferred set is the K.8303 which includes the Foredom® M.SR-SCT 1/6 hp 115V Series SR hanging motor, metal foot pedal control, and 44T collet handpiece.   $347

Where 220V is standard, the preferred set is the K.8303 which includes the M.SR-FCT-2CE 1/6 hp 230V hanging motor, heavy duty plastic foot control, H.44T collet handpiece and the correct plug for your location.   $312

Can be ordered separately. The H.44T is the standard 1"diameter handpiece which comes with the size collet needed for the endmills plus 2 others     $78

The MAMH-2 hanger- This hanger has the advantage of being able to be wall mounted or attached to the bench. I include with the tool information to determine the optimal height above the workbench.    $94

Other hangers, motors, footpedals and handpieces are available. Go to the Foredom site to see more options.

There is an additional shipping cost for all items.
