I Forge Iron

working with stainless steel?

Recommended Posts

Which stainless steel? There are a bunch of alloys ranging from soft and gooey to hard and brittle and they work differently. Tell us the alloy and we'll speculate on it's use.

In general stainless is harder to work than plain carbon steel and my require special heat treat/passivation to make it stainless again after forging.

303 is quite different from 440C.
