Jeezz I just broke an endmill last week
I needed 3/8 radius corners 1 1/8 deep. the only cutter I had that long was a 4 flute cutter with a 5/16 shaft. did three corners perfectly but just as I finished the last corner it chip bound and snapped the shank about a quarter inch in side the collet cost one mill and one collet. thankfully the job survived the disaster
Life beats the alternative hands down.
