Shaft mill vs End mill [Solved]

I’m buying a kress 1050 from sorotec and I want to buy 2 or 3 bits to work on aluminium but I’m a little confused about the diference between end mill and shaft mill: http://www.sorotec.de/shop/Cutting-Tools/

I’ve been reading the forum and it looks like 2 or 3 flute are ok. In the endmill category it only have 2 flute, is that ok? Should I by the 2-flute uni or 2-flute ALU? http://www.sorotec.de/shop/Cutting-Tools/END-MILLS/

:open_mouth: I have never heard of a “Shaft Mill BIt” before.
I wonder if it just a specific term this manufacture uses?

They’re just referring to an endmill with a 1/8" shaft i.e. ‘1/8" shaft mill’
