Anyone have any words on (turning) machining M50 tool steel?
Need CBN tips?
Threading?
Sourcing of the material up to 8" rod in small quantities?

Thanks,

DB

I have not heard of it. Is it new? Or are you thinking of M5 or M42? If it is hard as hell, CBN will cut it no problem. Most cermets should as well.
