    End mill for rivet jig dimples

    Will this 5/16 ball nose end mill work in a 10" drill press with 1/2" chuck and is it the right one for the dimples in a rivet jig.

    depends on the rivet of course. ive used ball end mills up to 9, 10, or maybe even 11mm for rivet bucks. remember it isn't the diameter of the head its the contour of the arc your trying to match.
    not taking new work
