OVERVIEW SPECIFICATIONS AND TECHNICAL INFORMATION

See Tool Steel Tolerances

Tool Steel Drill Rod W1 offers good strength and durability. W1 is a water hardening tool steel that is one of the most commonly used tool steels due to its strong characteristics. It does undergo a decent amount of distortion during quenching, so do be aware of that. It is typically used in shafts, pins, blacksmithing tools, and short term wearing tooling.
