Brass castings vs extruded brass


Recommended Posts

Hello all, I have some questions about brass. would a casted bar of brass be as strong as an extruded bar of brass? Also would a casted bar turn as well on a lathe as an extruded bar? Thanx in advance.

There are better places to look for your answers than a blacksmith forum. I suggest looking at the metal maker's product data sheets. They list the general alloy, strengths and working characteristics.
