Forge welding stainless

Recommended Posts

I have just "aquired" a couple of stainless steel sinks that I would like to use to make some billets. Are there any special problems with forge welding stainless (temperature, flux, etc) or is it similar to other steels? Is it worth even trying?

Thanx in advance

its covered a bit in the knife stickies, Main thing is to keep out air, as the nature of stainless is the same chrome oxides that stop rusting will also stop welding. Fluoride based flux helps, but its very toxic too, good luck
