I'm listening to you. I wanted to hear what you had to say.

I just never thought of making rings from it. But being air hard etc, I could see where it might be a viable alternative.

I always thought D2 machined real crisp. You can spot it a mile away because of the dull gray color. I suppose it would be just too brittle?

Seems like L6 rough and then go ahead and harden then draw it back would be hard but less chance of breaking? But I guess the rough finish before HT and then a final finish grinding would present a problem?

I noticed that a lot of things have changed in steels and cast irons in the last 30 years.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
Be all that you can be . . .
