Face mill Cutters

Face mills are primarily used for milling a face on the surface of a plate or bar. They are predominantly used to cut with the ends of the cutter rather than their sides. The term "face" refers to the creation of a flat face on the workpiece. The difference between these cutting tools is that end milling tools have a cutting surface on the end and sides of the cutting tool, whereas face milling tools only have cutting edges on the face perpendicular to the tool spindle.
