I just got some powdered 1084 and some powdered nickel in and am going to try a canister. I’ve got some steel blast shot that I’m going to add the powders to and maybe some bearings or swarf just to try. My question is how much nickel do you guys add to the 1084? It’s not cheap and I don’t want to waste it. My other question is could I make layers of varying steel/nickel combos like those colored sand vases kids make at fairs, and get a similar efffect, or would it all blend together? Thanks
have a nickel anode from a former electroplating works. it weighs 10lb 8 1/2 oz ( 4.77kg ) and is 28 3/4" ( 73cm ) long. when new it would probably have been 2" by 1" but has eroded down to a sort of chunky sword blank shape. anyone got any idea what the current nickel price is so if people are interested in it I dont try to over or under sell it.
Stefflus posted a topic in Smelting, Melting, Foundry, and CastingI've been asking myself what I would use to up the Ni in crucible steel if I wanted to make my own high contrast crucible steel damascus. I'd like something high in Nickel, and low in everything else, so I was looking at SAE 2515. In what kind of applications would this be found as scrap? Roller bearings? Other suggestions? I doubt I can find any FeNi or pure Ni locally. And I haven't been struck by any meteorites lately. We are the knights who say Ni!
