Q:Who or Where can I buy a Steel Pipe Making Machine?
Gary, Indiana. There's lots of old, unused steel forming equipment just laying around.
Q:Where can I go to find out info about different blade steels online?
White steel is a common shorthand name for white paper steel (shirogami hagane) which can be any of several fairly simple high carbon, water hardening steel grades. The carbon content varies by grade, and runs from 0.8 to 1.4%. The range of carbon content within a grade is a tight 0.1%. For example, the carbon content of Shirogami Hagani No1A is specified to be between 1.3 and 1.4%. Each grade also contains 0.1-0.2% silicon and 0.2-0.3% manganese, and only trace amounts of the impurities sulfur and phosphorus. Blue paper steel (aogami hagane) is also offered in several grades, with carbon content ranging similarly to the white grades. However, blue steel contains the additional alloying elements chromium and tungsten, and one grade (aogami super) also contains molybdenum and vanadium. The blue steels can be quenched in water or oil, whereas most of the white grades need a faster quench and require water.
Q:hard ionized vs stainless steel cookware?
I have a set of Stainless and individual pots and saute/frying pans that are non-stick. Calphalon is a good brand and should serve you well for now. They are easy to clean and work well for most dishes. If I looked at the right set of pots, these should also be oven safe which is great for stews and roasts. If you get into cooking you will probably want to purchase some stainless for preparing sauces. The fond (which is the basis for many quick sauces) from meat, poultry and fish will not accumulate on non-stick pans as well as stainless pans.
Q:Are solid steel or synthetic violin strings better?
Q:Which do u like better rolled oats or steel cut oats? and why?
Steel cut oats, much better texture. You can prepare them overnight in a mini-crockpot with raisins, brown sugar, nuts or anything you like in your oatmeal. You can also put steel cut oats and all your favorite oatmeal toppings in a stainless steel thermos with boiling water overnight. Either way it will be hot and ready to go in the morning. Have a great day!!
Q:Urine dulls too shiny stainless steel?
Stainless steel will rust under proper conditions. I live on a boat on salt water, trust me. If the urine works it won't be prone to rusting any more than before. It's not the shine that inhibits rusting with stainless steel, it the % of carbon in the steel, compared to regular steel. IF the urine works it's because it is acidic (a mild acid). Wash it with a small brush and some baking soda to neutralize the acid when your done. A much stronger acid would be swimming pool acid. (Muriatic acid) but be careful you might test a spot with a Q tip on the back. If you try Muriatic acid it would take seconds.Then wash in baking soda water to remove all acid.. SS
Q:Steel Strings or Nylons?
There is no OR about it. You CANNOT use steel strings on a nylon string guitar because the increased tension will actually warp the top of the guitar and eventually pull the bridge right off! (I have seen it happen several times!) Although it is possible to put nylon strings on a steel string guitar it is not recommended. Nylon strings do not have as much tension as a steel string guitar is designed for. Steel string guitar necks are actually designed with a bit of back bow to compensate for the high tension of steel strings. Nylon strings have a much lower tension which could cause the neck of a steel string to settle slightly, which could actually cause the strings to fret out. It is not common, but it does happen. So keep your guitars happy and only string them with the proper strings.
Q:Steel I-beam for header?
u can buy a laminated wood beam that would hold the weight and look better but will be taller than a metal beam i dont know much about building with metal just thought id give u another idea i know other ways but would not look good on a patio good luck
Q:Does steel give off harmful gas when heated?
Steel often has impurities that can generate fumes, which cause a fever identical to smoke inhalation. You always need to be concerned about what you are breathing around hot metal.
Q:what is the difference between METAL and STEEL?
Steel is a type of metal. There are many types of metals - some are simple elements such as copper, tin, iron or lead whilst others are mixtures of elements known as alloys such as bronze, brass... and steel. EDIT - and yes, once again Wikipedia has led someone astray. Metals are NOT exclusively elements. Metals are defined by their properties of being ductile, malleable and sonerous. Thus metals include both elements and alloys. Or is someone seriously proposing that a person building a steel structure such as a ship is not working in metal?
