What tests are you thinking of?
Sorry, the indention didn't come out in my message.
I was thinking of the things mentioned after that line - the hardness, abrasion resistance, and toughness.

We will take what we can get. ]I can tell you how hard it measured.
By abrasion resistance, I am assuming you mean CATRA test?
Our Charpy test is not set up in the new location yet. We can probably chase down the accepted Charpy for 52100?
Yes, I was thinking about the CATRA test, so we could compare it to the results we have seen posted for other steels.
While it would be most meaningful to have the data after the heat treatment and grind, that would mean the spec sheet couldn't be done until at least the first prototypes were made. Plus, it adds a few steps to what is supposed to be a minimal process.
I don't think any of us want to add an unreasonable load to your process, particularly on this first mule. So if the spec sheet can contain those results, great. Otherwise, some generally-accepted information on the composition and properties will do for me, and I'll wait to see what people post once they have the things in-hand.
