This head One object of the invention is to provide a is substantially cylindrical but its free, or nose, cutter of the character described specially deend is beveled or tapered, all the way around, as signed for the purpose of perforating the side of a shown at 2.

What I claim is:
1. A milling tool including a substantially cylindrical head having a water course therethrough, said head having threads at one end for the connection of a driving stem thereto and being tapered at the other end forming an annular beveled face, a series of side cutting blades on the cylindrical portion of the head whose lower ends overlap said face, at its upper margin only, and are beveled to conform to the shape of said beveled face and a series of end cutting blades on said beveled face whose upper ends overlapthe lower end only of said cylindrical portion and are beveled to conform to the beveled lower ends of said side cutting blades, said beveled portions of said blades being staggered with respect to each other, the adjacent beveled ends of the blades of the respective series overlapping, and the other ends of said end blades extending radially across the end of the head to said water course and some of said last mentioned blades projecting into the water course.
2. A milling tool comprising asubstantially cylindrical head and being externally beveled at its upper end, said head having an approximately axial water course therethrough and being threaded at its upper end for the connection of a driving member thereto, the lower end of said head being tapered, forming an annular beveled face, a series of side-cutting blades on the cylindrical portion of the head whose upper ends are beveled and whose lower ends overlap said beveled face, the overlapping portions of said blades being beveled to correspond to the bevel of said face, a series of cutting blades on said beveled face and staggered with respect to the side-cutting blades, the upper ends of said end cutting blades overlapping the lower portion of the cylindrical surface of the head, said overlapping ends of said end blades being beveled, all of said blades having flat outer surfaces which terminate in cutting edges at the forward margins of the blades, the lower portions of the end cutting blades extending approximately radially across the lower end of the head, the inner end of at least one of said end blades projecting into the water course, and the inner ends of the other end blades terminating adjacent the wall of said water course, all of said inner ends lying closely adjacent each other to completely shield the lower end of the head around the water course.
3. A milling tool comprising a substantially cylindrical head and being externally beveled at its upper end, said head having an approximately axial water course therethrough and being threaded at its upper end for the connection of a driving member thereto, the lower end of said head being tapered, forming an annular beveled face, a series of side-cutting blades on the cylindrical portion of the head whose upper ends are beveled and whose lower ends overlap said beveled face, the overlapping portions of said blades being beveled to correspond to the bevel of said face, a series of cutting blades on said beveled face and staggered with respect to the side-cutting blades, the upper ends of said end cutting blades overlapping the lower portion of the cylindrical surface of the head, said overlapping ends of said end blades being beveled, all of said blades having fiat outer surfaces which terminate in cutting edges at the forward margins of the blades, the
lower portions of the end cutting blades extend-
