Product Description

The 1018 carbon steel round rod has been cold finished, has an unpolished (mill) surface, meets American Society for Testing and Materials International ASTM A108 specifications, and has a standard tolerance. The 1018 carbon steel grade has low carbon content for a balance of strength, machinability, formability, and weldability. This material can be heat treated for higher hardness. The rod has been cold finished, a process of removing the outer layer to achieve the specified dimensions.

Steel is an iron alloy with carbon and other elements that modify the steel to achieve specific properties. In general, steels with higher carbon content have greater strength, hardness, and wear resistance, while those with lower carbon content have more formability, weldability, and toughness. Carbon steels, which include most AISI-SAE grades in the 1000 range, are classified by their level of carbon content as low (below 0.3%), medium (0.3% to 0.6%) and high (0.6% and above). Alloy steels, which include AISI-SAE grades in the 1300 and 4000 ranges and above, incorporate elements such as chromium, molybdenum, and nickel to modify properties like machinability and corrosion resistance. Tool steels, which include most grades with a letter and number grade designation, have high carbide content for wear resistance, high hardness, and the ability to hold a cutting edge. Some tool steels are designed to resist deformation when used in elevated temperatures.

Tensile strength, used to indicate a material’s overall strength, is the peak stress it can withstand before it breaks. Wear resistance indicates the ability to prevent surface damage caused by contact with other surfaces. Toughness describes the material's ability to absorb energy before breaking, while hardness (commonly measured as indentation hardness) describes its resistance to permanent surface deformation. Formability indicates how easily the material can be permanently shaped. Machinability describes how easily it can be cut, shaped, finished, or otherwise machined, while weldability characterizes the ability to be welded.

I made a floating arm Trebuchet as a family project to have a little fun during the 4th of July weekend up on the farm. I needed a pretty solid piece of steel rod to mount the counterweights. Locally it was hard to find what I needed at the length I wanted without paying more in labor to have it cut then what the material cost. I took a look on Amazon.com and found this rod. The price was good and through Amazon-Prime shipping was cheap. I ordered it and was pleased with how quickly it arrived and better yet the care that was used to ensure the rod was not damaged in shipment. The folks who packed it did an excellent job of packaging it up to ensure the ends were not damaged in shipment. Good quality steel and nice clean cuts. I filed the ends slightly to take the rough edges off. If I have a need for something like this in the future, I will most certainly consider using Amazon.com again.

I have my Hobart 190 welder on one of those small economy welding carts(Hobart 194776).A common complaint of people that buy this style cart is there is no handle.I fabricated my own handle using this rod and some other things.The rod came with a nice shiny finish and was easy to heat,bend and attach to the cart like I needed.

I got the 1 inch diameter, 24 inch long 1018 carbon steel round rod. It measured just a hair over 24 inches long. And according to my calipers, it's slightly over 0.999 in diameter. Perfect size. It does have a large UPC label, but unlike a previous review, the label was fairly easy to peel off. Using just my fingernail, I peeled it off mostly in one piece. There was some minor sticky residue and a shred of torn label left over, but I sprayed a little WD-40 on there and wiped it right off with a paper towel. It took about 2 minutes to get all traces of the label off with no damage to the bar. (This was in my freezing cold basement shop. I bet it would peel off easier if it was warm.)

I bought this to make a 200+lb dumbell for singe arm "Kroc" rows. This thing is the perfect length, and stronger than anything at the gym. I just bought a cheap bicycle grip for the center and it holds standard plates like it was made for them (I only use 10's and 5's). You can then use standard spring collars, or like me, get the standard lockjaw collars. Great for a Herculean home gym.

Rods were individually packed in plastic tubes. No rust, and they were straight. What more would you want? Welded nice with a basic flux gun.

Saw other complaints but received and cannot see any issues..Product measures at 1.495 inches so I'll take that as temp or micrometer variances...only super minor surface flash rusting in one little spot that came off with a wipe of WD40 and acetone...

The 5 metal rods were delivered as specified. They were in excellent condition. They were used in a Science project to test how fast heat travels through different materials.

Highly recommended.
