I Forge Iron

What steel is generally used in brake rotors?

Recommended Posts

I'm with Welder19 on this one.
Rotor drums make great firepots for home built forges. You can find great plans on-line, or maybe even in the Blueprints section of IFI (if you can't, email me and i'll send you a great set of plans i found a few years back).
If you don't need a forge for yourself, ask around your area if there are any up-and-coming smiths looking to build their first forge and donate the drums, maybe even offer to help in the build - sorta help spread the obsession ... uhh, I mean ... tradition. :)
