Re: Turning Hot Rolled Mild Steel

I use an Armstrong tool holder that was meant to be used with brazed carbide cutters, only I use quarter inch high speed Steel with a real nice curve radius I think the radius was 3/8 ? But you can take a pretty good cut and leave a good finish surface to my surprise

Re: Chop saw

Is your Arbor a 1in Arbor and do you know the exact RPMs output of the saw if so? I bought a carbide Diablo 10 in blade from Home Depot or Lowe's need to match RPM's. I cut through 2x4 tubing 3/16 wall in probably 10 seconds and the metal is not even hot but you can touch it
