Monel forging

Recommended Posts

I haven't forged Monel myself but know folk who have.

It has a narrow working heat range. Pay close attention and experiment before you start on the project itself.

As far as I know that is the one serious trick involved in forging Monel.

Monel is about as close to inert and a really durable but workable metal gets. It's one of the earliest commercially available types of Stainless Steel though I don't know if it qualifies as SS anymore.

Its used where corrosion resistance are important, for instance my Father spun the finial sphere on the Washington state capitol building in Olympia. That was while we still lived in Wa. state so it's a good 50 years old and is still as shiney as when it was installed.
