I Forge Iron

press punching hot steel

Recommended Posts

new to punching/slitting hot steel with a press, i have a question or two....and later will have more probly...

for example 25mm bar to slot,..

1) tool , h13 , geometry,...do i forge/shape as a slitter?

is it best to go right through in one pass or two and not turn the steel,
ie:...if i turn after one 95% pass, side b looks non the better for ware trying for a wad.

speed is slow, hence the two passes for a cooling and lube.

all good got some answers thanks.
