*When using carbide tools, surface speed feet/minute (sfm) can be increased between 2 and 3 times over the high speed suggestions. Feeds can be increased between 50 and 100%.NOTE: Figures used for all metal removal operations covered are average. On certain work, the nature of the part may require adjustment of speeds and feeds. Each job has to be developed for best production results with optimum tool life. Speeds or feeds should be increased or decreased in small steps.The information and data presented herein are typical or average values are not a guarantee of maximum or minimum values. Applications specifically suggested for material described herein are made solely for the purpose of illustration to enable the reader to make his own evaluation and are not intended as warranties, either express or implied, or fitness for these or other purposes.
