I am starting a new project and need to make some new tools. Mostly hardy tools. I need some fatter hunks of metal than what I have on hand. I have a bit of RR rail but it has issues. What sources of readily available fat metal do you folks have. I am thinking I need something on the order of 2"x2" or thereabouts. Also, I want some of this to be hardenable to stand up over time. Any secrets out there. The other thing I have tried is to take some RR spring clips and straighten them out then fold them over, forge weld until I get a big enough hunk. This will work but it's pretty slow going and I am not real sure about my forge welding skills. But this stuff is definitely hardenable.
