Yeah, I second this. Can you vouch for them? They look detailed and impressive but are they OK for use in a milling studio?

Yes and yes! You see, the hard numbers do not depend on other external factors like market fluctuations, etc. Take this and call it an app. It is a simple calculator that will give you the same results just like the normal calc - Garbage in garbage out. Feed in the accurate numbers and you will results worth crying for.
But in any case, it is not a must to use these. To each, his own. :shock:

You still have to accurately measure the diameters of the tools, though.
