The chrome moly alloy used in blued steel guns is the strongest thing out there today. Stainless guns sacrifice a little in strength in exchange for their rust resistance. Every maker has their own special alloys for various parts as well as proprietary techniques for hardening and tempering depending on the use a part will be put to. Keep in mind that the harder you make steel the more brittle it becomes. Especially true in knife blades also. A custom knife blade could be made much harder than they are, but would shatter under hard use.
Q:TRAGUS PIERCINg?!Stainless Steel?!?
all my piercings are with stainless steel..... i never had any problems with it honestly.... cause when i get my tragus pierced the lady is going to use stainless steel... cause when i got my navel done it was with stainless steel... most people cause have stainless steel they have to have other different types
Q:Steel used to be made in the \Bessemer Converter...?
Steel making today is a faster process as use Blast furnace which Coke Limestone Iron ore are fed into the top of the furnace. after these are fed in a exothermic happens and converts these ores into Iron. Iron is not strong enough to be used in thing this is formally known as pig iron. To convert Iron ore into steel it has to go to a process called the BOS Basic Oxygen Steel-making were oxygen is blown onto the iron ore for about 30 to 45 min and this then turns it into steel as all the impurities are taken out and this floats on top and known as slag and used for things such as road building. Once you have steel this is then pored into ladles and taken to the continuous caster and rolled into slabs, billets and bars and then cut off and rolled into a finished products and then taken to compniaes to be made into thins you see made out off metal such as skyscrapers. Hope this helps :o)
Q:Can a 1000lb hollow steel ball float in water?
specific gravity of a steel is approximately 7.82 as compared to water. so, the hollow sphere(filled with air) is having volume more by 7.82 as compared to solid sphere, then the 1000 lb hollow steel ball float in the water (Why Do Ships Float? The Greek Mathematician and inventor Archimedes lived during the 3rd century BC. According to history he was in the bath one day when he discovered the principle of buoyancy which is the reason why huge Greek ships weighing thousands of pounds could float on water. He noticed that as he lowered himself into the bath, the water displaced by his body overflowed the sides and he realised that there was a relationship between his weight and the volume of water displaced. It is said that he ran naked into the street yelling heurEka which is where we get our word eureka! (I found it), Greek heurEka I have found, from heuriskein to find. The Buoyancy Principle: Archimedes continued to do more experiments and came up with a buoyancy principle, that a ship will float when the weight of the water it displaces equals the weight of the ship and anything will float if it is shaped to displace its own weight of water before it reaches the point where it will submerge. This is kind of a technical way of looking at it. A ship that is launched sinks into the sea until the weight of the water it displaces is equal to its own weight. As the ship is loaded, it sinks deeper, displacing more water, and so the magnitude of the buoyant force continuously matches the weight of the ship and its cargo.)
Q:Best Quality Steel...............!!?
Please specify what kind of steel, is it structural steel (like wide flange, channel or Z-section) or reinforcing steel? For structural steel, all steel members that passed the requirement of ASTM-A360 are the best quality. While for reinforcing steel, it should passed the requirement of ASTM-D3963 for epoxy coated and ASTM-A615 (Grade 60) for deformed bars.
Q:Question about the strength if steel?
There are many types of steel some very rigid, while you can have steel that is very flexible. The type of katana: steel is for Samurai swords
Q:What are surgical steel earrings ?
Surgical steel is a grade of steel often used in medical appliances like tweezers, forceps, etc. It's generally non-reactive and considered very safe. It doesn't contain any special properties against infection--you still have to observe basic hygiene and clean your piercings properly--but most people can wear surgical steel earrings without a problem. However, if you have a contact allergy to base metals like nickel, surgical steel may cause redness or irritation because of the metals used in it. If cheap rings or necklaces make your skin break out in a rash you should NOT wear surgical steel.
Q:steel building for horse barn?
I have two steel barns, one is 4 stables. 15 x12 for 3 stables and the other 12 x 18 I have a large tackroom and an area for storing gardening and farm light machinery. (Chain saws. strimmers and fencing stuff.) The second barn has 4 stables 12 x 15. an 8' aisle and then two large loose shed areas. 30' x 50'. I can run these as one pen if I want. I have 45' x 70' at the other end for storing hay and straw. Haven't a clue to the cost but it wasn't cheap! Although it is all steel the lower walls of the stables are all blocks. I didn't want to line the steel with wood as they eat it for fun. The loose shed are lined with hard board.
Q:How much pressure can concrete and steel take?
About all I remember is concrete can stand tremendous compression but almost no stretch .
Q:Key differences between the term structural steel fabrication & steel fabrication?
Structural steel is steel construction material, a profile, formed with a specific shape or cross section and certain standards of chemical composition and strength. Structural steel shape, size, composition, strength, storage, etc, is regulated in most industrialized countries. Fabrication, when used as an industrial term, applies to the building of machines, structures and other equipment, by cutting, shaping and assembling components made from raw materials. Small businesses that specialize in metal are called fab shops. Steel fabrication shops and machine shops have overlapping capabilities, but fabrication shops generally concentrate on the metal preparation, welding and assembly aspect while the machine shop is more concerned with the machining of parts.
