I Forge Iron



Recommended Posts

Hey all

Anyone ever try this stuff for anything? As a noob I happened to notice this place is right near where I often work. If you think it is worthwhile maybe I will start to cultivate a relationship (Read "suck up and mooch like crazy") for scraps and ends etc.My link

May be high manganese too. Like most alloys it will be good for somethings and terrible for others. It will probably be harder to forge and heat treat than a simpler alloy. Knowing *WHAT* is in it would help a lot "special high carbon steel alloy" could be anything from 1080 to D2!

The fact that it's supposed to be easily welded and no special thermal cycling mentioned makes me suspect that it's not as high carbon as you may think! I think they are going for *TOUGH* and wear resistant.
