Default Re: Weeee!!! Snap! Awwww!!!!

Stainless is not hardened it is softer than regular steel which makes it tougher and less brittle. but don't use it in high torque apps (kit sprocket) as it likes to gall and once it does you won't get it apart w/o breaking it. Use Grade 8 on the sprocket, but SS works well on all the motor threads.
