What is ground flat stock?

Ground flat stock is a precision ground flat bar that comes in fixed lengths. It’s renowned for its accuracy and tight tolerances, which is why it’s often used for tool-making applications.

How hard is ground flat stock?

Due to the annealed condition of ground flat stock, it has a maximum hardness.

How flat is ground flat stock?

When it comes to flatness tolerance, there isn’t a real definitive flatness tolerance. In fact, the “flatness” that’s described simply means the material isn’t round.

Why are tool steels hard?

Tool steels are low carbon and moderate to high alloy, creating a substantial amount of carbide (NOT tungsten carbide). This results in fair wear resistance, toughness, and hardness.
