Could have been 6262 T9 ...6269 alloy ? i shall await it with open arms... when i see that hunk of metal cross my desk , it will be
a little bit of heaven......unless
Hmm. You think that's the cause of that damn root canal ?unless it was radioactve material from a nuclear disaster. did you have it tested for micro/nano sieverts ?
it only takes a particle to get in your body and stay there forever.
Alan Steel and Supply in ... Redwood City ? Cool place. There were two on the Oakland side, too ... Continental ? and another one. A good scrap yard is hard to find now.don't accept un-known metals from fucked-up places .
You can also check the electrical resistance of aluminum. When i worked at Mcdonnel-Douglas in Long Beach they would check incoming parts with a device that would check electrical resistance between two electrodes. There is enough difference in electrical resistance to tell whether the material is 6061,2024 or 7075.
SF area, I think Alan is still there, have read comments about them here. The two in the East Bay I am not sure about.i don't know what russian/chinese scrap-yard you refer ... but here in GA there ainn't no "scrapyard" where you can just waltz in and buy some materials.
From what he said, he gave quaaludes to girls who asked for them. I've never heard of a woman who declined that offer.I think I'd be careful eating anything "jail-o" that Cosby's been around...
Your mom and dad went to events in see-through dresses with their stuff on full display, hanging off Harvey's arm, then complained he treated them as sex objects ? I musta missed that (thank god)Why would anyone hang out with that fat ugly pig ?.......
yeahh my mom and dad... they never got famous-a sore anus and a jaill-o poop mile
Was that a two-probe measurement, or a four-probe measurement? For that kind of precision of resistivity measurement, I'd think that four-probe is needed.
The probes are in a line. The outer two provide a constant current flowing in the material under test. Voltage is measured between the inner two probes. Doing it this way allows one to see very small voltage differences in the material without being confused by the voltage drops at the current terminals.
mr. Engineer, no one is guessing these alloys based on density, that is about the worst option of them all

But yeah, seems like all the good stuff has been squarshed because of concerns about this, concerns about that. "Freedom", ya know ?
Mostly victims of rising land prices. I keep imagining they can't get any higher . . .
Weird Stuff Got a brand new 4070 there for $75 once. It had neato things from all kinds of systems when computing was interesting and fun.The Bay Area used to have dozens of surplus-anything places, particularly high tech detritus ...
