    I believe the term is "recast"...?

    I've seen it when cutting very large/tall parts where the burn was extremely slow (13-14-15" in Z). Not sure what the root cause is though.

    Well.. I don't know... they are listed as hard jaws, but the description says they are made from "1018 mild steel". Maybe they are carburized(sp?) and case hardened? :confused:
