What do we have here? Shear steel? Pig iron? Wrought?

Recommended Posts

I think what we got here is some shear steel... Old seat springs for a wagon?20181117_122437.jpg20181117_120411.jpg

I think what we might have here is pig iron. It looks like it was cast into a hole in the ground. Its a solid bar. Probably 50+lbs.

Cant you refine pig iron into wrought?

The seat springs are indeed shear steel, score!  The other thing needs better pictures.  Might be cast iron, might be cast steel from an ingot mold although those are usually square in section.  Might be wrought, cut off a chunk or polish and etch a window.

Cool! Now I just gotta convince my dad to give it to me. I'll replace it with a 4x4 or something.

Thanks!
