The guy who gave me this stuff said it's "Ti 4 6". Not sure what that means. Don't know if he meant 46 or what, but he said 4 6(four six)...JohnnyK.

    He probably meant to say 6-4 meaning its 6AL-4V or Grade 5 which is the top end strength wise heat treatable pretty hard and strong as is though.

    How big of a piece do you have? I might be intersted in buying it if your action idea falls through. I use it to make baffels for silencers.

    James,
    Sorry, didn't mean to ignore you at all. Been busier than the proverbial "one-legged man". About the block of Ti, I have two peices; one is round stock and the other is block form, both are about 12-14" long and thick. Will get exact measurements and reply back. JohnnyK.

    I do a lot of work with titanium engine parts.

    Ti-17 is absolutely up to the task, but it is not cheap.

    Mechanical Properties
    Density lb/in3 (g/cm3) 0.168 (4.65)
    Metallurgical Condition 1,650 F + age
    Tensile Strength, ksi (MPa) 165 (1,138)
    0.2% Yield Strength, ksi (MPa) 155 (1,069)
    Elongation, % 12
    Reduction in Area, % 25
    Typical Hardness 38 HRC

    This is very close to Rc 37 4140 quenched and tempered.

    edge.
