Micro-milling applications require high precision and dimensional accuracy. Chatter vibrations arising from unstable cutting conditions cause poor surface finish and damage to the cutting tools. Tool point frequency response functions (FRF); needed to generate stability diagrams, cannot be determined experimentally due to very small tool size. In this study an analytical model for tool point FRF of micro end mills is presented. An inverse algorithm is proposed to correct geometric
