What’s to rate about a plain steel rod? I cut it down to 3’ and pounded it into the ground, to hold up spiral Christmas tree decorations. It works and looks great. But, you can’t see the plain steel rod.

    I bought this to make a towel bar for my treadmill, which had no storage. It was easy to cut and worked perfect for my purpose. So far everything of this store brand has been good quality, no complaints..

      A bit overpriced, very oily (bring gloves to the store with you if you buy this), not especially round (might not work as a shaft material), but worked for my use (cut into small rollers to move a heavy lathe across a concrete floor).

      This is a plain hot-rolled steel rod, most likely close to A36 spec. Measured diameter is .366, which is pretty far off from the spec'd .375 inch. It has a rough pitted surface. It is a basic piece of steel for general use. I would not use it in any project that had any mechanical load requirements. For example it would make a good axle for a small cart, and it's good in a pinch for making quick steel parts. I chucked this up in my lathe to make a small non-critical replacement pin for another machine, and it worked as a functional piece. If you just need a piece of steel rod for a quick project, this will do.

      I got this for use in doing some work on Christmas wire frame decorations that I build myself. The size is appropriate for the wireframe light clips and it is easy to weld and stiff enough that whatever you build will not bend when it is moved around. Bending it is a challenge but it can be done. Obviously you want to paint something like this with multiple good coast of paint for use outside. And it needs cleaned well before painting. If you want to build something with no bends you can build something like a snowflake but that means more short pieces and more welding. I built a large tree out of rebar for the outer frame and I am considering putting a curved mouth on it with this with some smaller stuff maybe for the eyes.

      Metal stock, such as this steel rod is useful for numerous projects. This rod can be easily cut with a hacksaw and any rough edges at the cut line can be removed with a file. With a metal cutting lathe the rod can be reduced to a smaller diameter or otherwise fashioned to make custom parts. For attaching a small pulley a flat can be filed on the rod so that the pulley is locked in place.
