    Writing on steel/brass

    Hello everybody its dillion again, to mark my metal i have been using a grey or white sharpie but they do not last long and the marks dont seem to last very long after the piece rusts some the mark is all but completly gone , I was wondering what does everybody use to write on your steel for instance when writing what type,of steel it is

    What is this made of

    Thats what my thinking was but i figured id ask in case it would be really good steel the walls themselve are about 1 1/2 inches thick so it should bring a little money

    What is this made of

    Ok so do to asking very nicely i obtained the hub from a tractor the other day and wanted to know if this would be made of cast steel or not because if it isnt forgeable then its going to the metal place to give me a few dollars tomorrow along with 500 pounds old broken steel fencing

    Guillotine tool

    Hmm, I hadn't thought of that my logic was that the guillotine tool would help more because even if I loose some force, I'd be able to make up for it due to less bad hammer strikes.

    Thomas, how could it cut down on efficiency if I'm going to be using a set of dies that are shaped like a cross,pein?

    Guillotine tool

    Mine is a trenton anvil it has pretty good rebound approximately 80 or 90 percent, and probably not very much my intention is the mostly use it for some cuting ones I make some hot cut dies, and for lengthening forge welded billets and other stuff that is just to thick to efficiently hand hammer
