    What type of metal?

    Hello, first off I am sorry that I do not have any pictures at the moment, I will update with pictures when I am able. I would like to know what kind of steel railroad track connectors are made from (to be clear this is not railroad track). From what I have seen on the web my guess is that it is made from the same high carbon steel that railroad track is made from. However I was not able to get an actual confirmation on it. I was hoping that I could make hardy hole tools from it as well as other items that require good steel. For those who are curious as to how I got a railroad track connecting rod: I work at a place that uses railroads and it was leftover junk that I was permitted to take. thank you all
  2. Can you forge a singe piece of steel too many times ?
  3. Hi guys, the other day on an auction I got 2 boxes of oldmanemu suspension springs for 50ZAR ( that's about 4 USD ) , I read that spring steel works differently, so I don't wanvto start on those and just end up o wasting them How does spring steel forging differ from mind steel. Is the heat treating process the same ? Thanks for any advice Michael.
