Thanks for the tip Jerry. I will look into that. In the round carbide tools I’ve seen the round recess is milled to match the taper of the blade. Any concerns about cutting the recess with straight sides? I can grind the front profile to match the cutter’s taper easily enough but not sure it is possible to mill the taper against the handles side without a milling machine or something.

EDIT: And any thoughts about the kind of steel to use? Can I just use mild steel or do I need an alloy that is a little stiffer?
