Guillotine Tool Die Material
Eric Dennis posted a topic in Tools and Tool MakingHello, I'm recently made a pretty heavy duty guillotine tool for myself. I made some simple fullering dies for it out of mild steel, but as I plan on making other die shapes I'm wondering what others use for steel material? Is mild steel fine? Should I go for a higher carbon content? Should they be hardened? What do you use? Thanks in advance, Eric
