I have a question for the engineering types amongst the group.
Can anyone recommend a firm to supply small amounts of good turning metal at reasonable prices? There appear to be large number to choose from?
Also, although I have a rough knowledge of metals, can anyone tell me of a book or web page that provides information on the types of steel etc and their ease of turning / uses. At present, if we are looking for example, for a stainless steel that is easier to turn, we would have no idea of the grade required. Hence it would be nice if someone can point us in the direction of some decent up to date learning material, so we can get a rough idea of what we are being recommended!.
