Metal working...tips
 
Cutting metal with router tools for wood can work good. See video.

Good idea John,
BUT
on the second part you milled against the tool rotation. It is better for cutting to move WITH the tool rotation.

Be careful cutting with the tool rotation. If you have any play or lash in a machine it will suck the cutter in. Cutting with the rotation is usually reserved for cnc machines with ballscrews.
