High speed steel can withstand high temperatures without losing its structure. If you have dull saw blades or drill bits that you no longer use, most people don’t know that you can scrap them! After a large construction job, bring your dull blades and bits to a scrap yard to make a few extra dollars and get the current High Speed Steel Scrap Prices.
The best thing you can do is to take your equipment that is no longer being used and scrap it. The iScrap app can help you find a scrap yard near you that accepts high speed steel (HSS) and also help you find prices at those yards. To get the best price for high speed steel contact more than one scrap yard near you as sometimes different yards pay different prices.
That is a GREAT question…and one that could not be further from the truth. Carbide and HSS are VERY different metals and the value of them are very different and many times they look similar. Ways to tell them apart could be with an XRF analyzer so it can see what metals make up each of the drill bits. Often times you will find with high speed steel that it will have a HSS marked on the side…and that is a great way to know it is not carbide .
Large loads of high speed steel and other metals can be picked up. All you need to do is fill out a container request form on the iScrap App and your local yard will contact you with information and pricing for your metals.
Here are some other metals that you will find for scrapping from machine shops:
