A shop that switched to powder-metallurgy steel after being told it would be easier to grind has found the opposite to be true. For some facts, the shop turned to Dr. Jeffrey Badger, the host of Cutting Tool Engineering's Grinding Doc Video Series. Watch the 26th episode now.

About the Grinding Doc Video Series: Thanks to his work as an independent grinding consultant and the author of the "Ask the Grinding Doc" column in Cutting Tool Engineering magazine, Dr. Jeffrey Badger routinely receives questions about grinding from shops all over the world. Through the magazine column and this video series, he provides shops with the insight and guidance they seek.
