ball bearings and steel powder in europe ?

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I would like to give canister damascus a go, but I cannot find materials for it. Steel powder where do you get that in europe ? Could I use something else than steel powder ? maybe just tiny cubes of steel or shavings ?

 

Best regards

In europe that would be 1.2067 i have used some on a recent blade for cutting edge. Now to find the powder version of 1.2067 would be interesting

You can collect your shavings from grinding. It will take a while to collect enough but you'll know exactly what is going into it. Drill shavings as well.
