Periodically I make a part that requires sections of 1.5inch stainless rod. They need to be consistently sized and the cut needs to decentlyperpendicular. It doesn't need to be aerospace accurate, but they need to look good. In the past I have sliced them with a parting blade on the lathe, and knocked the burr off the edges with a file while it parting. Its not great, and I still need to lightly face the parts. I probably just need to try it and see, but I was wondering if it might be faster to just section them to rough length on the horizontal bandsaw, and then face them to length. I guess I should go look up some SFM numbers to see how fast I can saw cut 304.
