    So the question is how can there be different 1018? Seems to me that some supplier is not selling 1018 they are selling something else under that "name."</font>
    Good question. To be 1018 it has to have 0.18% carbon content. Period.

    Within some tolerance, anyway.

      A little off topic:

      But at the old closed place we used alot of stainless steel,

      the USA/Canada stuff was as expected

      the China stuff was, um, different

      machining, welding, rusting but all three had the same number

          Hmmmmm

          Got some 1018 from Metal express (picked up, they are local) a little while back.

          It finished fine. No problems.

          It was reasonably cheap, too. A 4 foot piece of 1 5/16" diameter was about $15. I'd seen it much higher.
