I get left over or scrap from the ships I work on .
The stainless is the material I'm wondering about :
It holds up as good, if not better the SAE 316 , but machines like C1144 or stressproof
i.e. really easy as compared to SAE 316 or 304.
You guys have a name or number for this?

303 ? Thats free cutting but not as good corrosion wise as 304 or 316
