Darn pricey stuff. How big is that 90g stick.


I am wondering if a hot wire will cut thin slices of this stuff. Seams is should. I would think this would make for less waste.

About 1" in diameter by 8".
I put it in a plastic bag on tapped on the end to break off some tiny chunks which will live in the bag with the stick. The pieces I used were about the size of a grain of rice. The 90gm should last me for years.
It's about the cost of a decent end mill.
Best,
Stan

Is it also reusable by chipping or melting it off the workpiece and work holder in the chuck? Seems like some good stuff!

i did that, Paul.
When I removed the penny with heat, the CB , after cooling, chipped off the aluminum. I threw it in the bag.

A bit OT, when I got my new lathe, I took two pennies (NZ, same size as old UK), put them in the 3 jaw chuck and faced the tails side off each of them, then sweated them together.
