After hours on the interweb I have face mill shopping fatigue. Lets start with size, in the 45 degree face mill category is a 3" too big for this mill? Options are 2", 2.5", or 3". I'm reading some people saying 3" is too big for a BP. Second does anyone have a brand recommendation? I looked at Grizzly, Lathe Inserts, Glacern, Maritool, seems like every damn one of them use a proprietary insert. Glacern has a nice one I'd buy in a minute but $20 an insert? Seriously? Ridiculous. Shopping around for inserts it looks like the only source is the tool vendor themselves short of ordering from China.
