Turcite from the far east

(1/6) > >>

HughF:
As I alluded to in my emails after the scraping class, I have found a source of far eastern Turcite style way material. A sample is on order and will be here in the new year. Details as below:


Pete.:
I'd like to try that out. What size sample did you get?

1m long, 2mm thick, 100mm wide, 27 delivered :)

Graham Stabler:
Has anyone checked price/availability of the "real" stuff in the UK:

If not I'll drop them a line in the new year anyway, my Feeler lathe needs doing.

I also see that slideway services have a variant called Marlon.

I guess my question would be how to know if the far east stuff in any good without long term testing?

Cheers,

Graham

HughF:
Graham, I guess it all depends on hrs/year usage pattern. I'd be perfectly happy running asian stuff even if it had 30% lifespan compared to the real stuff as I probably use my machines 1hr/month and I'm a cheap bastard.... ymmv :)
