Hello all
I want to ask You how You cut nantan or any other iron meteorite ?
Besouse yesterday I received my 5kg nantan and start to cut it on one end
(small slice around 7x4cm) and I destroy 2 diamond blades 0.5mm. This was
verry strange, becouse diamonds from one half of this blades was weared out
and from another not. Now I have this blades with diamonds for example 4mm
on one side and 5mm on another (in diameter).
This can be any troilite inclusion or what ? Blade was cut this nantan up to
1.5cm inside and then stop cutting and start waste blade.

Anyone know what happend ? This was my first iron cutting on my machine.
Thanks for help
