    gentlemen i bought some pure Nickel Sheet, .062" (1.6mm), 6x2" (15x5cm) from canada it stands me at 20 im not skilled enough to use it and rather than waist it id rather swap it for a similar value of steel i can use .id like more W1/W2 or 15n20 as i can defo use both.

    doubt its to do with brave, more to do with the fact the stuff should be gold plated at twenty dabs for a piece that size

    maybe your right but the way to look at it if your a thinking man is that i need W2 more than i need pure nickel !! that leaves you guys in the strong position !!

    Unfortunately a thinking man will know that a piece 6x2" is barely enough for two layers in a small billet.

    if you have realized that's its a bit too hard to work with atm. why not just save it for a year or two?

    thats it dcl .
    i have in the corner of my mind an idea to laminate it with thick mild steel weld up the edges and let it sit in the forge til it alloys . leaving me with home made nickel /steel for core construction.
    or more complex and i dont know anything about it . put mild/carbon scrap in a crusible in my new furnice and once molted add some nickel again home made nickel steel .
    go on shoot me down ha ha ..
    tell me im a stupid boy !

    I don't think I could be that mean- The idea of you resorting to casting your own steel tugged at my heart strings

    pm me your address and we'll get it sorted.
