    Tim, if you want to do version 2.0 of your aerospace damascus idea, ask your supplier/sponsor if they can get you PH 13-8 Mo (AMS5629, XM-13, UNS S13800).
    It is also martensitic, it is also very low in carbon (max. 0.03 wt%) and it is compatible with the aging temperature of MAR250, meaning you can precipitation harden your damascus at 950°F and get both component grades to high hardness!
    PH 13-8 Mo is also considered to be an aerospace grade and it will be interesting to combine with MAR250 because both are martensitic and heat treatment compatible, but the 13% Cr in PH 13-8 Mo makes it a stainless steel grade.
    If PH 13-8 Mo is not available, try getting either 15-5 PH (UNS S15500, XM-12, AMS5659) or 17-4 PH (UNS S17400, type 630, AMS5643), both are also martensitic, can also precipitation harden at 950 °F, but they are not so low in carbon.

      @S The PH grades are stainless steel martensitic. After forging the steel needs a solution heat treatment, which passes AC1 and AC3 to 1050 ⁰C / 1950 ⁰F or so, so fully into austenite structure, and a cool down to room temp where it fully transforms back. At that point it's martensitic again.
      Precipitation hardening (ageing) follows afterwards and is a relatively low temperature heat treatment so you keep the martensitic structure, with in some cases a little bit of newly formed austenite, depending on which temperature you decide to age.

      Uhhm if u forge it doesn’t the martensit diffuse back to ferrit/perlit/cementite? Parts? Because it gets heat treatment while forging so its kind of a tempering? Idk explain pls

      Right, next time, after getting a heart, I should *not* edit the post, not even for correcting typos. Heart/like goes away.
      If you do manage to get PH 13-8 Mo, you will have a valid excuse to play around with dry ice and acetone because PH 13-8 Mo benefits from a cold treatment after solution annealing. Soaking it at -78 °C / -100 °F after solution annealing will transform the left-over austenite to martensite, improving mechanical properties even further after aging/precipitation hardening.

    I don't think you overheated it. This is common in CuMai forging because copper has a low melting point compared to steel. Basically, the material melts and becomes like solder between the layers. You just have to weld it airtight and then don't hit it after it gets to temp (maybe a light tap or two if you have gaps between your layers). Let it cool and consolidate on it's own.

    Next time try welding the niobium in place onto the canister so that it doesnt move. It should prevent condensing and will allow a more even damascus. Keep it up and if you need any more ideas I'm a blacksmith too so I can always try to help.

    Part of me wants to see osmium/iridium Damascus, but that would be both insanely expensive and really hard on any of your tooling.
    I think osmium in powder form can form osmium tetroxide, which is toxic. That also probably puts a damper into the idea.

    Something like s60v might be a good choice for welding to maraging steel to.. You might need to do it in a sealed canister or with an electric furnace with an argon atmosphere as s60v is a stainless steel. The reason for choosing s60v is that it has a high tempering temperature, so if you could get the two welded, you could harden with specs for the s60v, which should not affect the maraging steel, but then temper at 900F for 4-5 hours, which should leave the s60v at a 50-55 Rc but also result in the maraging precipitating martensite and carbides, also ending up around 50-55Rc... Not the hardest steel, but should be very usable in a blade and may be all but unbreakable..
    An alternative would be to get maraging TIG rod (yes, that's a thing) and weld it to regular steel, or conversely, get tool steel welding rod and weld to the maraging...

    If you're still interested in the tool steel side of this experiment, you could maybe try damascus made of A-10 and M-4. The A-10 has 2 percent nickel, and they're both high-alloy, so should be 'sort of' compatible for forge welding.
    Plus, tool-steel damascus should be plenty tough and sharp, and maybe even kinda cheap compared to the exotics you've been tinkering with.

    Hi Timothy - like your experiments - that´s the way to find out what´s possible... Maybe a way to connect the niobium with maraging steel is with diffusion welding. Both materials should work good with this process. That just as a first step to get a layer structure with a good bonding. After that forging should be possible.

      Dwell time strongly relies on accurate voltage regulation. Dwell time only increases the depth of the color. Most companies don’t increase dwell time as it doesn’t increase the surfaces hardness or ability to retain color when damaged. The longer the dwell the more likely color irregularities can present themselves as voltage across the object is not evenly dissipated.

    Huh. That's exactly how I imagined it going with two metals of extremely different melting points, like encasing lead plates in a welded steel box expecting them to forge together.
    Both are fascinating yet incompatible forging metals, though maybe the ideal marriage between these two is to craft a rigid structure from the niobium and simply forge maraging steel around it.
    One has high temp and hardness, the other is malleable and strong. Maybe a core structure of niobium leading to the edge of a blade, encased by maraging steel to support the niobium and prevent a brittle blade. Maraging 350 is a superalloy, with a respectable Brinell of 601, while niobium is way past that point at 736...surpassing even nitinol.

    So b4 I comment I don't know much about the materials used here but honestly, next time I would keep the damascus at a lower melting point (like 3900°) so that the steel doesn't just melt when u hammer it down, I feel you would get a better compression of the two materials here. Other than that, very interesting vid, I absolutely love your curiosity here, and very much look forward to your next video. And I'm curious, if you can get the damascus to do what you want next time, can you run some "forged in fire" style tests to test how durable ur damascus is?

    Forge welding metals and Mokume Gane is basically the same proces. The proces is called diffusion welding/diffusion bonding. Its putting 2 or more dissimular metals together using heat and pressure. You dont need to melt one of the steels to get them to attach to each other. I have read in an artikel you only need to go up to 70-80% of the temperature needed to melt the metal that has the lowest meltingpoint in the stack. If you are planning to fuse more than 2 metals , the in between layers need to be the metal with the lowest meltpoint .The reason why you did not get a stacked billet using these 2 metals is because you got the maraging steel way to hot.( you did no forge welding but you were in fact brazing ) I did experiment with titanium and steel ( experimenting with some more affordable metals :) )...in the end i used a copper layer as a binding layer to get the titanium to stick to the high carbon steel. Aplane encasing did not work to get the billet oxigen free....i used a 2 feet long tube to feed the encasing with pure argon ...that worked. The plan was to first make a grade 2 and grade 5 mix timascus and use that as the sides to carbon steel to make a san_mai pocket knife......i did not get that far yet. I very much enjoy these video's from people trying to do things that are rare or are even never done before...very inspiring work Timothy (sorry for the bad English).

    Well you don't really have to forget weld it. It almost cast itself in the canister. If the stuff that melted is still strong after it cools down you could heat it back up (hopefully without melting it) and forge it out. If the other metal in the canister was tac welded together into a pattern it should keep that shape and the other stuff should fill in all the gaps. You might be able to make something cool out of it.

    Hi Tim. I did some research, and I found that in order to make a Damascus type artistic look you would need a much closer melting point. Because the difference between steel and niobium is so great it is difficult to control the reaction. I also found that tantalum has a much closer melting point to niobium of 3017°C. Niobium being 2477°C, could give you that Damascus style you're looking for without it being so difficult to work with. Niobium has a similar ductility to iron. I belive that if you preheat the tantalum, then add the niobium in layers alternating between the two while you forge it, could yield better results without melting the niobium.
    Also; using the box seemed to have been working well. Perhaps a flat tool that fits in the box in combination with the hydrologic press could help in keeping the pieces organized.

    The problem trying to match pure niobium to steel is that niobium and iron have a eutectic point where the melting point is as low as about 2500F. Even though the melting point of the two metals is much higher, the Nb dissolves into the steel until there is enough to lower the melting point. That looks like what happened here.
    Even if you did manage to forge weld this at lower temperatures, it probably wouldn't be useful for knife making as the combination of Nb + Fe forms some hard and brittle phases which would ruin the properties of the steel.
    Niobium is used in a lot of steels at tiny percentages, and nickel superalloys use about 4%, but applications for pure niobium are virtually non-existent.

    Is it still classed as forge welding if you melt one material to completely encase the other?

    I love that you never know if everything is going to work. Most KZclip channels only show positive outcomes, like you watch a Disney cartoon...

    melting the welds was a really obvious problem when you were making the canister LOL cool vid though!

    I wonder if the niobium casing is acting like a sacrificial zinc anode on a boat, it gets eaten so the other metal bits do not.

    You could maybe get easier fusion if your box was high vacuumed.

    If I were to guess the anodizing didn't work because of the solution attacking the steel first due to the galvanic series. To be honest I have never heard of bimetal anodizing

    You should handle your Niobium with gloves. Certain people's sweat can etch the material while other people are actually allergic. I learned this when I worked at the NSCL in Michigan.

    great to see someone using a respirator. Consider switching to a full-face (or getting a swing-down face shield). The acids used in anodizing can really bad if they happen to splash into an eye. And if you can smell the tanks, you shouldn't be breathing that air unfiltered...

    Just curious, but what made you think that dissimilar metals would weld to each other?

      Some websites incorrectly report a melting temperature of 2575 °C, so Tim made a combination of metals based on the wrong information. MAR 250 has a melting temperature of 2575 °F.

    Where does the shavings go, I am wondering cause I havent actually done forging or seen a fully forging process but I always do wonder what happens to the metal shavings afterwards.

      I asked a few different channels a while back and the most common response was that it's melted into slag billets, unless you meticulously clean up after each metal to isolate the shavings from each other, but in either case they're cast into small dyes or they're made into billets for use later. A few also told me they have ways to use it as abrasive for other softer applications.

      I would assume the waste metal is either collected and scrapped , or melted down and re-cast.
