Default End Mill Purchase

I just finished making out an order for HSS end mills. I noticed that all of the end mills have a 3/8" shank, regardless of the cutter diameter, the carbides I have the shank and cutter are both the same on each size end mill. I got some 1/8", 3/16", 1/4". 5/16" 3/8", 7/16" and 1/2", I got 5 of each size in both 2 flute and 4 flute center cutting. I probably should invest in a real good 3/8" R8 collet and a couple more of the 3/8" collets for the collect holder I got from Grizzly. The end mills will be drop shipped directly from the Korea factory, I bought them directly through the sales rep and the LWS, I'm going to be their Guinea Pig.

When they come in, I'm going to have Norm to stand behind the milling machine and make CNC noises, so I can pretend.
