A little while ago maybe up to 12 months I put a request on the list for info on companies who produce small diameter milling cutters.  One of our number was kind enough to reply with the names of two companies unfortunately however I have lost (put in a safe place and forgotten where the safe place is) the info so can whoever sent the original info send it again. 

Dear Chris,

Most tool suppliers should have small cutters in their sales program, so I think
it would pay off to do some local shopping first.

If this does not work out:
Our local supplier is Clarkson:
In their series of carbide cutters they have a line of 'miniature tools'
including diameters from 0.2 to 2.0 mm in steps of 0.1 mm

An alternative is Fischer in Germany, specialised in jewellers tools,
They sell many small tools as well, and have HSS tools which will be
considerably cheaper.

Best Regards,

Lex Lennings.
