    Default More steel :)

    Hey all,

    Today skipnord and I went to steel warehouse/distributor that had auctioned off 40,000 lbs of steel. The deal was we had our choice of the steels in that lot. It sold for 50 per lb !

    My interest was in getting some steel for post anvils. I already have a bunch but nothing this good, so I stocked up!

    Essentially 2 27"x3"x4" of D2
    2 17"x3"x4" of 4142
    several 1 3/4" pieces of 4140 round bar for making hammer heads

    3 pieces of A2 block
    several small smaller pieces of 4142
    Total 550 lbs , 300 miles , $330 and 12 hours of time.

    Here are some pics

    His truck list's hard to the left like that anyway, like some ancient iron boat on Lake Superior. I'm sure all that iron didn't improve the balance much.
