I work on a lot of teeny parts (e.g. less than an inch). Sometimes I want to face the stock to a final thickness. When I do, it always chooses a face mill. I think I want to face with a small end mill, say 1/2-inch dia. Is there a rule where I can specify to select an end mill for a facing operation?
To get around this, I have been making open pockets, which works okay. However, it seems to me that I should be able to do this.
