It seems like for square end mills, aluminum specific end mills are 3 flute, and steel are 4 flute variable. I haven't needed to load a 2 flute more than a handful of times in the past year. Anybody still use them regularly, and if so, for what?

To make money, 3ft. rougher Hanita, carbide of course, 2 flute finishers, Niagra

As with GregSY i have drawers full of freebies but as with HSS I generally only use them if I have no other option.
