Subject:
1/2 x 1/2 x 18" steel for Bedan source?

JL
Hi, long time no post.

Anyway, I would like to make a large Bedan. I use my 3/8" Bedan a lot for tapering (tapered tenons, rolling pins) and making tenons. A 1/2" Bedan would work a bit better.

Two part question:
What would be the preferred type of HSS? M2?

Where can I find it? I only need a single piece.
