ciladog Posted June 12, 2012 Share Posted June 12, 2012 Some members on IFI tell us they can identify what tool steel or alloy they have by spark testing. I say that is just bunk with a capital B.Historically smiths would determine that there was carbon present in iron and spark testing just told them about a relative content.So if you are one of those IFI members that think he or she can tell me what an alloy is with a spark test, you post here and I will give you the challenge. I will send you 5 alloy steels for your testing and we will see how well you fair. No spectrometers allowed! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
