I was at the scrapyard today and picked up some cutters.
Here is a photo:
formatting linkThe 3 thick ones have the following stamped into them: UNION-CARD DIV STW 8 x 1 1/2 BLADE-1122 R & L WEDGE-W-25 & W-25L
The thinner one has: Apex Tool & Cutter Co Inc Shelton Conn53-60404 8X 742 46-820052-01 BLADES 65-66-11
It's a safe bet that the teeth are some type of carbide.
What type of steel are the blades made out of?
What is the typical use of these cutters?
I ask because I will be very happy if I got 40+ lb. of some type of tool steel that can be forged into interesting, sharp things.
