Mystery metal

Recommended Posts

So my uncle got this from my late grandfather's house. He thought it was stainless since it wasn't rusted bUT was with a bunch of rusted steel. He says it's extremely difficult to drill and when using a torch it throws a lot of metal. The holes in it were made with 7mm mag. He says it doesn't spark hardly at all from a grinder either. Any general ideas? If it helps my grandfather was a machinest and probably got this from work.

Sure, it looks like it Could be stainless. What are your plans for it?. Looks like one of those awkward to use pieces. Stainless can be areal bear to drill. I got a bunch of stainless steel from my grandfathers estate. He built fire trucks among other things. Wasted a lot and still have some I'm saving for the right projects.
