.............Ok, maybe this should have been in the turning area, as it is about lathe tools, but, I hope that maybe some non-spinny side guys might have some info.
I'm looking at a few tools, like these........
Basically, they are just a straight steel rod, with a special grind on it, so I do not see why I could not make such a thing myself.
I just bought these on auction..........
They are JIS SK4F Drill rod, I'm hoping these will be good for making lathe cutting tools.
I can also get JIS SUM24L rods in various sizes.
If anyone knows about this kind of stuff, I'd sure like to hear about it.
