    17-4 in flat bar isn't the easiest thing to find.. 17-4 flat bar already heat treated is
    even harder to find.. McMaster carr. 1"x1" x 3ft, about $120 not hardened.. Almost $400
    already hardened... That's F'n ridiculous.

    Heat treating 17-4 is just about the cheapest and easiest heat treat in the world, just
    buy the bar and get it heat treated. Should be somewhere close to free, plus shipping.
    Might even be able to do an H900 with the cleaning cycle in your oven.

    The other thing.. You can get round bar in an H900 pretty easily and not at staggering
    cost... is it something that can be made with some squared up round bar???


    Edit: Why do some places put square bar and rectangular bar in 2 totally separate
    categories?? Why can't they just put it all in rectangular and start the 1/2" thick
    stuff at 1/2" wide, and the 1" thick stuff at 1" wide... BUT NOOOOOO!!! got to
    go to a totally different category.

    I've had very good luck buying this from EMJ (Jorgensen) Metals. Fry quoted about double the price. The current stuff is from Italy. Local place turns it around in a couple of days for heat treating.
