is specification which covers 52100 high carbon bearing quality steel
to be used in the manufacture of anti-friction bearings. And is the most common steel grade in ASTM A295 standard for high-carbon anti-friction bearing steel.
What is 52100 bearing steel?
52100 bearing steel is a high carbon, chromium containing low alloy
steel that is through hardening and noted in particular for use as
52100 bearing steel is one kind of special steel with features of
high wear resistance and rolling fatigue strength. High-carbon chromium
bearing steel, engineering steel and some types of stainless steel and
heat resistant steel are used as materials of bearings and for other
Advantages of Chrome Bearing Steel 52100:
Superior hardness, 60-67 on Rockwell hardness scale (Rc) at room temperature
High carbon chrome alloy steel
Operates continually at temperatures up to 120°C
Used to produce precision ball bearings and roller bearings
Long working life

4. Forging of A295 52100 Bearing Steel
52100 alloy steel is forged at 927 to 1205°C, and should not be forged
below 925ºC. A post-forge equalization treatment is recommended at 745ºC
for 4-6 hours followed by air cooling for SAE/AISI 52100 steel.
6. Heat Treatment for ASTM 52100 Bearing Steel
52100 alloy bearing steel is heated at 816°C followed by quenching in
oil. Before performing this process, it is subjected to normalizing heat
treatment at 872°C followed by slowly cooling in order to reduce the
AISI 52100 bearing steels alloy can be hot worked at 205 to 538°C.
AISI 52100 bearing steel can be cold worked using conventional techniques in the annealed or normalized conditions.
For spheroidize anneale, the following isothermal anneal is recommended:
1500ºF (815ºC) for 3 hours
1350ºF (735ºC) for 4 hours
1250ºF (675ºC) for 3 hours
Slow cool to 1000ºF (540ºC) then air cool.
AISI 52100 alloy bearing steel could be hardened by quenching in water from 801-829 degree or quench in oil from 816-842 degree.
Temper to desired hardness as indicated by tempering curves after water or oil quench.
5. Applications of 52100 Bearing Steel
steel 52100 grade bearing steel is mainly used for the manufacture of
aircraft bearings and other highly stressed parts. This steel grade
52100 steel is preferably vacuum arc re-melted to give optimum
Typical applications: Bearing Manufacture, CV joints, ball screws, gauges, knife etc.
While I’ve been an outdoors-person my whole life, I didn’t become an “outdoorsman” until about 10 years ago. I wrote a little about this in the forward to J.D. Lenzen’s Paracord Fusion Ties Volume II as it coincides with my “discovery” of paracord. It was then that I sought some serious outdoor survival skills to maximize my safety during solo hiking trips in New Hampshire’s White Mountains. I was fortunate to first find Cody Lundin’s 98.6 Degrees: The Art of Keeping Your Ass Alive
which in turn led me to Bushcraft: Outdoor Skills and Wilderness Survival by Mors Kochanski. These are two of the most valuable and influential books that are absolutely required reading (in my opinion) for anyone who spends time hiking, camping, backpacking and the like.
In Cody’s book I learned the importance of a basic, lightweight survival kit; the proper contents and their basic use. One of the “game changers” for me was learning for the first time the benefits of a fixed blade knife, specifically one with a carbon steel blade. I’d carried a pocket knife my whole life (and still do) but never understood how infinitely more useful a fixed blade can be in the woods until I read this book. While not identified by brand in the book, the two knives shown in Cody’s text are the MoraKniv Clipper 840 and the MoraKniv Classic #2. Pretty much anyplace you see Cody Lundin, including the Dual Survival TV series, he is wearing the #2 as a neck knife and using it in the bush. From Cody and Mors’ books, I learned how to use a fixed blade knife safely for countless tasks including: cutting/ splitting wood to obtain dry material in wet conditions AND using the carbon steel blade to make a flint/steel fire.
The arrival of these new products finally spurred me to put a video together that I’d been planning to make for some time – an informational video on the flint/steel vs. ferro rod fire. In this video, I compare and contrast the benefits of including one of the MoraKniv Carbon Steel Knives, a ferro rod, a flint and steel striker, and charred cloth in your kit. I discuss the types of tinder that work best with a fire steel, and the situations where charred cloth really shines. Additionally, I demonstrate techniques that make take the mystery out of starting a fire by striking sparks off a piece of steel with a rock!
Hello guys here’s my DIY Jib Crane for dslr which I built from my old garage door opener, (bar) my broken bed steel frames, and steel pipes. Here’s a short video on how I built it and some clips of the test footage. Camera I used: Sony action cam & Canon 70D
