Response to I think you should..
I hate cutting stainless, my machines are more than up to the task and I have cut a lot of it but it is just a PIA to machine. I finally got a bandsaw blade that cut it without melting and binding up but the mill and lathe still cut it hard. Even with trying different coolants it is still a pain. I would rather machine steel anyday. Plus on the lathe I got long stringy super sharp swarf no matter which cutter I used. The mill had less problems with it it seemed than the lathe tho....
