I have machined plenty of inconel, if they were "blowing up cutters", he needs to hire a machinist that knows what he's doing. It does go through cutters faster than say 304, but not that much more. It might also be a good candidate for ceramic cutters if they have a rigid enough machine (non linear way). If they really want to waste some cutters, cast Hastaloy would do that.
