I recently had a job to do where I was cutting 304 stainless Steel. For this particular job I decided to use a tool manufacture by Carbide Tools Ltd. I used a 6mm 4 Flute R0.5 “Quick Feed” Tungsten Carbide taking a .5mm depth of cut. I was able to reduce my machining time from 13 minutes per component to 3.5 minutes increasing my productivity by 73% leaving an exceptional finish on the final machined product.
