Mark Mandell - Gone Round In Jersey
>Need to make some cutters for hollowing tools. I can get the stock (Enco) in 1/4 and 3/16 square bar but they come in 2-1/2" lengths (@ $1.50), so I need to halve them. This stuff is HSS with 10 Cobalt.

What do I cut these with, abrasive wheel in the die grinder? I don't think my hacksaw's gonna get very far.

Thanks

Mark
