I'm looking for tungsten-nickel stock in about 1" dia. stock. This is the
material that is used for darts.. Don't need much- maybe one foot.

TIA-

DeSpam the return address.

Actually, I'm looking for a source also.  I use it for making small things
heavy.  No, not a Pinewood Derby car, but ballast in an H0 scale model
locomotive.  That aluminum-zink alloy they use for die-castings now-a-days
ain't near as heavy as good old type-metal.

Tungsten is very heavy (sp. gravity of 19.3, same as gold, much heavier than
lead at 11.3), and dart players like darts that are thin for their weight,
mainly so the next dart thrown in the same vicinity isn't as likely to be
knocked sideways.  I'm guessing the nickel makes the material workable at some
loss in density.   Sorry, don't know where to get it.

You can try some of the Copper-Tungsten folks out there-they might help.

Contacts Metals Welding   www.cmwinc.com

Eagle Alloys   800-237-9012

Mi-Tech metals  800-624-1895 (ad says "small minimum orders")

Good luck
(BTW, Nickel is only slightly denser than copper-probably won't notice the diff-Tungsten-copper is
much more common. Typical use is spot welding electrodes).

I forgot to add that the Tungsten-Copper machines like cast iron(surprising :-/)

I dabbled in HO once.  I loaded the cars with rolls of pennies.  It's
about all they are good for.

As stated in another post, it's dense and I find it turns easily. And no,
I'm not making the Mother-of-all-Darts; I want to try it for guitar slides
(as in bottleneck).
