    Anyone ever mill this stuff before?
    Thank you.
    Yes, you can use HSS upon it. We just made a pile of Worm Wheels with it. I made the Single Point Tools for it. Only needed on for all of them. ( there were three of these boxes )

    It machined up real nice.
    Thank you for all the advice.

    I ended up using a 1/8", 2 flute carbide endmill and ran at 25K RPM and 30 IPM. I started at 50 IPM, but backed off a bit as my high speed inline spindle didn't seem to like it all that much. It might of been ok, but I was playing it safe.

    And someone had asked what these were for. They are for line audio thru a metal chassis. There are binding posts that pass thru these.
