Thanks for the reply.
ok its standard pipe. (seamless) It is 9" long, and im just reducing the diameter to 4.345 +/- .005 the entire 9". now i can do this if i go slow with the coolant on it. Butits taking me about 45 mins for 1 piece. I am doing a production run so im looking for the fastest way and still maintain tol/finnish . I have several types of inserts avaliable, but i was using the cheap brazed on carbide cutter because pipe is crap. It contains hard spots that can eat up your tooling. I also have hss at hand and the means to grind it.
p.s. The finish needs to be 125 micro
