Questions & Answers

What tool is best to cut metal to desired length?

Asked by: Peter
SAFETY FIRST: WEAR EYE PROTECTION AND WORK GLOVES! I use my 14" Cut-off Saw that has a metal cutting wheel. It has a vise for holding your work and I find it to be the most accurate way of cutting steel to length. The molten steel generated by the heat of the blade will leave a thin, razor-sharp edge that will need to be filed or "kissed" off on a grinder or wire wheel. It is very similar to a carpenter's chop saw but is designed specifically for cutting off metal. A must have if you do a lot of metal work. A hacksaw will work on this, however it is tedious and the blade tends to walk on you.

how much does this weigh? says .68 lbs but I find that hard to believe - felt more like a few lbs to me in store. Want to use 2-3 of these stacked as a snowblower bucket weight.

Can i drill holes

Asked by: Eg
I have a drill press and was able to drill holes without any problem. I usually drilled a small hole and the used larger sized drills to gradually achieve my desired hole size.

Can I use this steel to make knives??

Carbon content
Asked by: Bigal
This would appear to be simple 1018 low-carbon steel, the carbon content of which is too low for it to properly harden (.18%). That being said, there appears to be a reason for it being listed simply as "Plain Steel" rather than a more specific type, as some of the answers/reviews here have mentioned occurrences of work-hardening while working with this steel, which shouldn't happen with low-carbon ("Plain") steel, which makes me think that it is produced with fairly high tolerances in alloying variation. Ideally, for knives you would use a carbon steel such as 1045 or above - the last two digits refer to the carbon content, the higher, the harder the steel, the better it will hold an edge, at the cost of toughness, becoming more brittle. Alternatively, you can use tool steels such as A2 or O1, which can be more difficult to work with, but offer their own benefits. They each have a very specific set of alloying components. The letter at the beginning indicates the quenching medium to be used, A being air, O being oil, W being water. For blades under 8", stainless steels are also an option, trading mechanical properties for ease of care (they are significantly less likely to rust). Generally you would want to go with something in the 400-series, 420 HC and 440C both being very popular due to their higher carbon content. You should avoid stainless steels for longer blades, as the chromium that gives it its "stainless" property also increases its susceptibility to stress fractures and thus the chance of catastrophic failure. Back to the heart of the question, low-carbon steel such as this is generally unsuitable for knives, but, being easier to work, could be used as a practice material for first trying out knife-making, before moving onto working with more difficult materials.
