    I am with the guys above. It's been decarburized, or improperly treated, or both, and the HT guys absolutely should have controlled that. The "have to HT three times" thing is BS. I get perfectly...

    Yes, it's obsolete. Still quite useable at HSS speeds. The biggest drawback is that you really need a tool&cutter grinder to maintain it. 2nd drawback is unavailability of replacement inserts, I...

    Thickness tolerance is informally +- 0.002". In this particular situation, curling won't be an issue. The finished part will be restrained, and the customer is willing to hand-flatten if it won't...

    They made some models for decades. However, I've just bought a 9" that isn't in an early 1970's catalog, so there was some product line turnover. If you can find a model number, that will certainly...
