Howdy! I'm designing a part with some curvature-matching and I'd like to produce a spherical indentation in a piece of Nitronic 60 SS. I am wondering if I can expect the surface profile to be reasonable in a cutting operation with a center-cutting ball end mill. If I'd like the indentation surface profile .125 spherical dia. with -0/+.003" tolerance and a depth ~.075", is it reasonable to expect that can be cut or will I have to have embossed or something?
