Scruffylookingnerfherder Posted July 27, 2017 Share Posted July 27, 2017 I am thinking of making a hot punch and slitter and was wondering if that requires high carbon or tool steel, or whether I could get by making them from mild steel. I figure hardening and tempering would be useless, as the hot metal would ruin a heat treat, but, if I'm not mistaken, high carbon tends to be more resilient than mild, even unhardened, so I'm not sure what to do with this.
