Tool steel is generally priced as a per pound price, so the buyer would need to know how many pounds that they need to purchase. The service center will convert the size of the needed piece into the required pounds, in order to supply the buyer with a price for the piece. Converting the size of the piece to pounds in an easy conversion.
