    How does 17-4 SS turn? I've made some small shafts and pins from store bought SS bolts and I've turned some 303SS (man does that stuff turn beautiful). How does 17-4 SS compare to these for turning? I'm thinking of ordering some in the H1150 condition.

    It turns very nicely. Even on Sherline type lathe. Super nice finishes are easy.

    Only small complaint is I find it's hard to chip break, you get two mile long chip if you let it!

      Hitmiss if you don't, grind a chip breaker just behind the cutting edge of the tool bit. It will make the chip roll or at least help. 17-4 also threads nicely.
