    If that is 20 cents for al turnings that beats our 15 cents. Solids are 32-35 cents at the two local yards.
    $140 a ton for ferrous machine castings, cars are only $80 a ton.

    You probably should specify what you are looking for appearance wise. Not my area of expertise, but I would think forming a major portion of your container will be more costly than fabricating it...

    Have you messed with the speeds and feeds yet? Sometimes dropping the rpms while increasing the feed can work. I also have had luck with grinding off half the cutting edges.

    Looks like he finally reappeared on kick starter and is still running with his BS about tariffs. Is this guy so arrogant that he thinks people believe all his excuses. His latest gem:

    I never use constant surface feed on cut-off, but I never barfeed anything bigger than 1.375". In fact I usually do the opposite and slow the rpms the last .100 depth so the part drops in the part...

    McMaster Carr is pretty good with selling quality products, it is likely either domestic or a decent European brand, not Chinese trash.

    Not to throw you another curve ball, but if your 6061 is Chinese it can easily gum up end mills and you will have to not cut it as aggressively as a good domestic or European brand.

    I get my feeds and speeds from some software that I bought in the late 80's. Recommended feeds and speeds are just a starting point, many times you can go way faster and other times you must slow...

    I signed up for Orderfox and checked every couple of days for a while, haven't been back in months now. Most all the RFQ postings are from European countries, rarely were there any in the USA.

    You might need to do some research before posting about credit card charges being reversed. 60 days has long since lapsed. Why do you keep sticking up for this guy?

    Depends on what direction the wind is blowing. The 3 scrap yards around me have prices that vary wildly from week to week.
