sailingdog khbritten-

Just be careful if the stainless is under high load. 304 stainless tends to have serious problems with chloride induced corrosion and can fail pretty unexpectedly. You'd be much better off using 316L stainless for both pieces.

RickBowman khbritten,
What type of stainless steel are you discussing, as this could make a difference.

sailaway21 Your "problems" should be minimal.

sailingdog The steel will get eaten up as a general rule, since it is less noble than the stainless steel.

JouvertSpirit The less noble metal will seek nobility. I hope that doesn't bring politics into this thread

matching steels and galvanic corrosion

Anyone know if I will have a problem with stainless steel abutting regular steel in a damp and salty place?
