Distributors will offer small quantity buys while mills will generally only sell large quantities, with delivery times anywhere from 10 to 50 weeks depending on size and form required This material is stocked primarily in Bar Products by 28 distributors but is also available to a lesser extent in Flat Rolled Products, Wire Products, and Shapes.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.
ASTM A – 92a() Standard Specification for Tool Steel High Speed
M2 is classified as a “medium” machinability tool steel in the annealed condition. Forge at F down to F.
It may be shaped by grinding but is relatively poor in regard to capability of being ground. Primarily used for cutting tools. A chemical analysis of each heat of steel shall be made to determine the percentage of the elements specified including carbon, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, silicon, chromium, vanadium, tungsten, molybdenum, and cobalt and these values shall conform to the requirements as to the prescribed chemical composition. Consult the alloy supplier for information on the advisability of welding.
See “Heat Treatment” and “Tempering”. Temper at F for a hardness of Rockwell C 60 to ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

Hardens by heat treatment and quenching. Unless otherwise specified, material shall be made by an electric melting process.
Not applicable to this alloy. Then heat rapidly from F to F and hold for 3 to 5 minutes followed by quenching in oil, air or salt bath.
The maximum Brinell hardness and minimum Rockwell C hardness for the tool steels are given. Preheat at F before heating for hardening. Cold working may be accomplished with the alloy in the annealed condition.
Modulus of Elasticity Tension. Do Not forge below F. Formed by machining or forging and then machining. Anneal at F and slow furnace cool at 40 F per hour, or less.
The M2 alloy has somewhat better wear resistance than M1. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
