    I'm not sure where to put this, so I guess it fits here. Anybody know where I can find a supplier for some 5160 (or another high carbon steel) in round stock? I have already harassed Rob and he dose not have anything.

    Well for round stock in high carbon you could go with drill rod in w1 or O1. I'm pretty sure rob has that. I'm planning on ordering up some W1 from him. Other than that I'd say hit up a salvage yard if you have a forge and. Straighte. Out some coil springs. Good chance they are 5160 but unless you get them direct from a spring shop you don't know what they are made of.

    Yeah, for round 5160 I think that your best bet is finding some coil springs out of a pickup truck at the scrapyard. You'll probably have a better time finding round O1 if you want to avoid straightening out pieces of coil spring.
