The whole object of titanium is that it was developed for aviation
use. Using the V4 a6 alloy.
Avoid this if you can as its primary function is to replace
aluminium alloys, where the heat of air friction at mach plus 3 speeds
heat up the aircraft skin.
it really is too hard for our jewellry use, as well as anyone trying
to cut it with pancake dies. I dont use these, all my dies are 1/2in
thick upwards using fly presses and/or crank presses from 6 ton
Standard Birmingham jewellery techniques.
My advice, is to only buy the most commercially pure you can find.
Its the softest and most ductile.
You might just then be able to cut it.
I doubt the practicality of pancake dies for titanium other than
15/1000 in thick material in fully annealed state.
