Spark Tests


Recommended Posts


I will try this again. I was putzing around in the "shop" and decided to do spark-test videos of several known metals.  I did wrought, mild, 1045, 1075, 1095, A2, D2, H13, and 4140.  When I get a chance, I will try to add some more metals.  The clips are all 15-25 seconds, and I cut out the sound (you can make your own crunchy, screeching, grinding noises). If I do more, I will probably switch to "phone orientation" to get the whole spark pattern, and do it in front of a dark background.

Admins, I searched but couldn't find anything like this.  Please feel free to move or delete.

thanks, Paul
