Machinery's handbook #26 but got confused on the formals and figuring....
it was told to me that it is a high grade steel, cutting the end and rounding it with a grinder, very little sparks...which tells me it has some hardness to it or a higher grade then common carbon steel.
Info...........I am a welder....have a welding business and a comp machine shop....so sort of know hardness and grades of steel....
