    12L14 is just fine, like to make a stabilizer for a compound bow or no stress parts like that.

    for eye bolts and crane sling rings,,stuff like that I like 1140 stressproof or 1018cr.

      You can pretty much do anything to it except weld it.I used to make a lever out of it that had a cold formed section that was drilled and reamed after forming.Didn't see any difference in cutting afterwards.
      I just need one more tool,just one!
