I Forge Iron

Got some 4140

Recommended Posts

Hammers, hardies, drifts, stakes, punches are all good uses for 4140.   It will not harden hard enough for a good knife and is not good for thin cutting tools but is  a good steel for many blacksmith tools.  I use 4140 or 4340 for most of the tools I use under the power hammer. 

$.50/lb is a good price.  I am paying $1cdn to $1.20/lb buying 1/2 a ton to a ton at a time.

That is what I was thinking.  Said that stick had been there since he bought the shop 16 years ago.  He also said he has some others there that he will give a good deal on to because they have been there longer than that piece.
