Originally, all milling cutters were made from HSS (high speed steel) from small diameters to large shell mills.  Over the years, substrate technology has improved and cobalt was added to improve tool life. (HSSE = 5% and HSS-Co8 = 8% cobalt).Cutwel has only ever offered 8% cobalt HSS milling cutters as our lowest priced/quality milling tools, where as most our competitors sell low quality bog standard HSS at the same price we offer the better quality substrate. HSS 8% Cobalt is suitable for machining steel, copper and aluminium. For longer tool life and harder wearing metals please choose coated milling cutters.  HSS is not suitable for stainless steel, for stainless machining we recommend TANK POWER coated powder metal.
