M2 high speed steel is a popular choice for cutting tools due to its ability to maintain a sharp edge at high temperatures and its resistance to wear and deformation. It is made by adding molybdenum and tungsten to a basic high carbon steel alloy, resulting in a tool material that is tough and durable. Our Lathe Cut-Off Blade is made with this top-quality material, ensuring that it can handle even the most demanding machining tasks.
Size P1 blades are 1/16" wide and are the most commonly-used size. P1N blades are 0.040" wide. These thinner blades are good for small work. P1X blades are 5/64" wide. Use these thicker blades for parting off larger diameters where you need additional stiffness.
It is easier to part off large diameters if you cut a groove that is wider than the cut-off blade. First, make a cut about 0.100" deep. Now back out and move over at least 0.010". Cut in again, widening the slot. Continue with this cut until you are 0.100" deeper than the first slot. Repeat this process, moving back and forth, until you are through.
