Analysis Applications Heat Treating Tolerances Speedy Metals items

W1 drill rod is a 1% carbon water hardening tool steel that has superior machinability over all the other tool steel drill rods. W1 provides good wear resistance and toughness for the short run, but will not give tool life as extensive as O-1. W1 drill rod is produced in a ground and polished condition, with a fine surface finish better than 40 micro inches. Supplied in standard 36" lengths.

AISI/SAE W1 conforms to ASTM A-686-79, SAE J-439, QQ-T- 580 RevC

APPLICATIONS
Typical applications for W1 drill rod are shafts, pins, taps, drills, punches, arbors, machinery parts, cold forming tools, blacksmithing tools, woodworking tools, chisels, etc.

HEAT TREATING
HARDENING Heat thoroughly to 1425-1500° F. Hold one half hour per inch of section; quench in water or brine. TEMPERING The tempering temperature may be varied according to the desired hardness. If maximum hardness is desired, tempering should be in the range 300-400°F.
