  10. Do the physical properties of 4340HT (249-301 BHN) chage when torched?

    I have 12 pcs to quote. The parts are about 300#'s of 4340HT, and need repairs to the bottom surface of the counterbores.
    The Ø2.5" bolts that held the piece down for 10 years, were rusted to the...

    I assume you mean removing the Z value in Tool Offset? (or do you mean face of the part, offset?)
