i'd recommend the NTMA Harig Speed & Feed Calculator. It's essentially a cardboard slide ruler that helps you determine cutter speeds and feeds for various operations and materials, based on either high speed steel or carbide cutters. It's available on the NTMA website. It's super handy to have in the shop.
