I was wondering how easy Alloy 260 Brass is to machine?
My project is to take a 7/8" OD (.745" ID x .065" wall) tubing and bore the walls to .018" wall.
Would this be hard to do, and can I get a good smooth finish? What type of tooling (HSS, Carbide?).
How hard is it to form this material. After the wall is bored to size, I need to put it into a fixture and form a 2 degree taper on the total length (1.125" Lg.) and also it will flatten the bottom slightly. Will this material stretch or crack when I put the 2 degree taper on it?
Thanks very much!
