    Default List of steel grades and uses chart

    I would like to have a list of steel grades and uses. I have searched and not found what I need. I thought I had a link to a site that had a list but I don't. It seems someone posted such a list and I thought I bookmarked it but I guess not.

    Does anyone know of such a list?
    It's only ink and paper

    I was looking for a list I can print out for a friend that hates computers. I could scan the pages from the HB and enlarge them but that is a last resort.

    If you could wangle a copy of the Ryerson stocklist they have extensive information of that sort. Even an ancient copy would be good.

    Carl, I use a bunch of pdf's which I find most helpful. They include composition info as well as things like toughness, etc. Some of the info, such as color codes is specific to this particular company. You can view/download them here: http://emjmetals.com/products/bluebook.asp

    Carld, try Central Steel & Wire. They sent me a book on all the steel products and specs, now it's on line. They may send you the book if you inquire.

    Thanks fellows for the sites and ideas. I'll try to get a copy of one of the metal books for my friend and use the sites for me.

    Not sure if this one is what you are looking for Carl.
    I realize this chart is very general and certainly not all inclusive but it does give a general idea of different steels and some of their applications.

    I am not sure what to think of a chart that lists "Cold-rolled steel" as 1070? And "Gears, transmission" as 3115??
