Does anyone know a good inexpensive place to get HSS(high speed steel)? I'm trying to mill some polymer on my drill press...

Looking for just a HSS endmill? Try eBay?

Know anyone in the greater Seattle area who could hit Boeing Surplus for you?

Just looking for a ground piece of knife steel, even scrap would work as I can re-sharpen it. Going to put it into a vice bolted to the a press table and run a cylinder down along side it and lathe some diameter off. I don't have anyone in Seattle that could pick any up for me

I have a ton, make that a butt ton of profile knives from my woodworking days. A lot of them have profiles ground on them, but I'm sure I got some straight scrap sitting around. They're 1/4'' corrigated-back, Rockwell 56 hardness if I recall. What size do you need? Not so close to you that you could pick it up, but could mail it. Maybe trade for some good canned bee.....olive oil, yeah olive oil. Dale's or Ranger.

You know I'm not sure what size I would need. Whatever you would recommend for milling UHMW rod I guess. Ground might be better but if you think i could grind it myself with my cheap angle grinder then that would be great.
