I wonder what people feel about Dave Ticehurst's suggestion to use a 2 flute end mill (slot mill) in cutting slots and cutouts by chain drilling with it, (offsetting the vertical plunges by a little less than half the mill diameter) in preference to plunging and side milling the slot end to end using numerous shallow passes.

It does seem to complete the job faster (on reasonably thick stock) and I think I can see that it uses the mill more efficiently, and allows easier re-sharpening. I might try it!  :dremel:
