Does anyone know what tool steel allow would be good for
making ones own wire and tubing dies.
G’day; I’ve used ordinary mild steel and then case hardened it.
I have also used annealed truck spring and then hardened and
tempered it. But like Alan said - if you are a jeweller, then
don’t waste your time - buy one. I didn’t because a) I do it
for pleasure and b) I as retired when I did it. Cheers,
