    How do you say

    1 ) 6061 - do you say sixty sixty one or six o six 1 or other ?

    2) What about RC when referring to hardness ? Do you say Rockwell or RC or other

  • #2
    Alloys, 6061-T6 would be sixty sixty-one T six. 4140, forty-one forty

    60 RC would be 60 Rockwell Generally in my experience the only scale most people use is the C scale anyway.

          The only requirement is that you and the person your talking to understand what your talking about. Many people have different ways of describing something. Know what you want and be able to communicate it to someone.

                      Now for those not familiar with Kiwi, what Peter wrote would sound like
                      sux oh sux wun...

                      Now in my corner of Oz, it would be Six Oh Six One, and (say) fifty two Rockwell C

                        What about "HSS"?

                        I mentioned "Aytch-Ess-Ess" to some brits one time, and they didn't understand what I was talking about (could be my pronunciation though).

                          Weirdly enough although it is abreviated as HSS, I've never heard anyone around here do anything except give it it's full name - so even if it was on a piece of paper as HSS, if I were reading that out to someone I'd more than likely say "high speed steel" or perhaps "high speed" if the listener could safely assume I was talking about HSS

                            Thanks for the answer, Michael. It was my fault then.

                            But it's reasonable anyway when I think of it, you don't say "em-pee-aytch" when you mean miles per hour, do you?
                            But you may say only "miles", as in "It has a top speed of 185 miles" perhaps? (same as your example with "high speed")
