Is any of this really needed?
This is various stuff from the merge and I don't know how much is really needed. I feel that all of this can be found in other articles.
Properties of ferrous metals:
* may be pure iron or they may be alloys of iron and other elements. * it is common that they be highly magnetic, although not all of them are. (Austenitic stainless steel, a ferrous metal, is non-magnetic, while cobalt is magnetic but non-ferrous.)For example, referring to "ferrous metallurgy" includes the production of metallic iron, including wrought iron, cast iron, steel, or other alloying elements.
==Ferrous metals== Common ferrous metals include the various irons and steels. Common non-ferrous metals include aluminum, copper, lead, tin, zinc.
- I have expanded the ferrous part slightly. This may be of help to those who know little of the subject. I do not think it necessary or helpful to list non-ferrous metals. Peterkingiron (talk) 22:12, 8 April 2008 (UTC)
Okay, the article may say the uses are mostly deprecated, but... what WERE the uses? I saw this matierial in a minecraft mod, so i'm interested in what it is used for. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 15:35, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
