Steel is made of billions, trillions of very small crystals. This is true of most metals. In order to see the crystal structure of steel, you usually need to cut a sample of it, grind and polish the cut face smooth, then etch the steel with a mixture of nitric acid and alcohol. Without polishing and etching the crystals aren't visible- it just looks like smooth solid metal. Also, in most cases the crystals are small enough that you need a microscope to see them clearly after etching.

Lol that's sung ha jung. You can play with both types but it is easier to start off learning in nylon.
Q:Finger picking on Steel acoustic guitar?
I've seen people put the guitar on a table and pick it that way. This is fairly common method in playing Bluegrass and country songs. There are finger picks that are used. These are finger rings with claws.

Q:What is the weight of a molecule of steel?
Steel is an alloy consisting mostly of iron with a little Carbon thrown in. Steel is not a molecule, therefore, it does not have a molecular weight. Steel contains atoms of iron and carbon in a crystal lattice, along with various other alloying elements such as manganese, chromium, vanadium, and tungsten.
Q:How to weld aluminized steel?
Yes. Buy a bimetallic strip where one edge is aluminum and the other is steel. A bimetallic strip is a special metal strip where an aluminum strip is fused to a steel strip by high frequency welding. You can form the strip to the shape of the table legs' cross section then weld the steel edge to the leg and the aluminum edge to the table top. Ensure however that the aluminum table top is a weldable alloy and compatible with the bimetallic strip.( You can not weld Al. Alloy 6061T6 so look for Al.Alloy 5086H32 or 5456H321 or the lower Al. Alloy designations, but they have to be strain hardened and not thermally hardened).
Q:Good steel toe motorcycle boots?
you can go for UDYOGI make safety shoe.
Q:Does cold steel of kershaw make better knives?
You could argue that CS makes the tougher steel, but as was pointed out, none of their wares are made in the U.S. - if that doesn't matter, then go with the CS. I started with a CS Holdout II and ended up sending it back and going with a Kershaw (Ken Onion) Blur for EDC. My next knife will be a Benchmade- they are pricey but everyone I've ever spoken to about EDC knives tell me to go to Benchmade and no one else. Not one to just listen, I had to try out a few myself. Bought the wife a Kershaw Scallion...in purple, no less.
Q:Can a fine grit whetstone replace a honing steel?
A steel is to clean off an edge and remove any bends on the bevel, it is not directly for sharpening as it removes no material from the knife (or should not). A whetstone, however fine, does remove material. A steel to maintain an edge, a stone to restore an edge. They are different items for different purposes.
Q:steel or aluminum on fixie?
I'm afraid you have opened a can o'worms. Aluminum as a material is roughly 1/2 the weight of steel. Aluminum as a material is also roughly 1/3 the strength of steel. his means you need 3 times more aluminum to make a frame as strong as steel which makes the aluminum frame 25% heavier. That being said, well designed and more expensive aluminum frames can easily weigh less than low zoot steel. Buying a cheap bike with an aluminum frame will ALWAYS weigh more than a middle of the road bike with a steel frame. ...and THAT being said, high end steel can easily weigh less than a high quality aluminum frame... note we are talking frames in the $2000 range- just for the frame. So, based on your explanation and attendant budget of the bikes you are considering, buy the steel bike. You won't be losing or gaining anything... except saving money.
