Default Saw Cuttings

Are there any uses for band saw cuttings? Seems a shame to just throw them in the scrap bin.

Mix them with paint and paint your walls. Then you can hang magnets anywhere on the walls.


Throw them on top of fresh concrete for traction, and they will eventually patina pretty well.

You could always try taking 50 pounds to an auction. See if you can find a soulmate.

Market them as iron supplement for soil. Someone will buy them.

If you knew the composition you could use them to make canister damascus, but you'd have to be rather OCD to sort your saw chips

It could be cast iron, mid steel, grade 8 steel from sawing off a bolt, etc. Don't think I care to adopt any OCD traits.

Maybe it could be used to do some mag particle crack testing? Probably too coarse for that.
