Surfacing

Surfacing is producing a nice surface finish on a fairly large work piece surface. The goal here is not to remove a lot of metal, but to produce an attractive surface.

A fly cutter uses a single point tool (read lathe tool) to "fly" across a relatively large diameter. This is a relatively slow operation because there is only one cutting tip, and it must run relatively slowly because of the large cutting diameter. But it can produce a nice finish on a large work piece.

Indexable end mill

A large end mill can also be used for surfacing. As long as the end mill diameter is large relative to the work piece size a good surface can be created.
