Looking at the cutting tool it appears the last 1/16 inch or so has the face ground flat. That would make sense as there is no point and the cut action shown was very shallow multiple passes. I was wrong about the point doing the cutting since there is no point. The face is flat so that the tool will not self feed downward while cutting. But, this compromises the shearing action of a normal endmill and it is not possible to se if there is clearance on the diameter.

You are right, John will have to give us a professional opinion.
