Paper Abstract

The following discussion will cover the details of a study on 304 and 316 stainless steel. The purpose of the study was to attempt to optimize a hybrid method for producing specular mirrors in stainless steel and other ferrous materials like Be. The manufacturing approach taken involved the selection of a single point turning tool that would produce the minimum sub-surface damage condition. The criteria for sub-surface condition superseded that of an optimal surface condition due to the need for a post-polish of the materials. The reasons for this choice will become more clear.
