All items in this pack are 3-4 feet in length and it comes with the following sizes: 0.25", 0.375", 0.5", 0.625", 0.75", 1"

Mild Steel Metal Pack 1018 Cold Finish Round is a great way to get the best value for your production needs by combining the most common items needed by our customers in one item. 1018, the most popular of the cold-rolled steels, offers a good blend of strength, some ductility, ease of welding and machining. Chemically, 1018 is similar to A35 Hot-Rolled steel, but the finishing process offers superior surface finish and mechanical properties. It is typically used in pins, rods, shafts, spindles, and sprockets.
