Default End Mills

Does anyone still use reground end mills? Seems like most home machinists think they need brand new exact size and probably carbide to boot. I am old fashioned and see major advantages to regrinds and big savings on tooling prices.

I use carbide myself but if you want to go that way there is no harm in it at all.

For small cutters it makes no financial sense to re-grind them to most machine shops.
