Hi, I posted this over on the want to buy forum, and the shop talk forum, but thought I'd post it in several areas, since not everybody visits every forum. As the subject line says, I'm looking for some high carbon steel 3/16" thick X 3/4" wide. I've got some projects coming up and that size would really be handy. I used to buy it in 1095 from Admiral, but they no longer carry that 3/4" width. They offered to cut me some for the cost of a decent used car, so I declined. I've looked at a bunch of commercial steel sellers and mostly what I come up with is 1" widths.

If anybody knows where I can get some, or has some they would be willing to part with, I'd like to hear from you. I can be contacted on forum or off forum at: ackerforge@yahoo.com

I really like the 1075-1095 series of steels, but I'm no steel bigot. O1, W1, W2, 5160, 52100, etc., etc., I down with any of those.

Thanks, Dana
