Nope, they're mild steel.

I cut them in my chop saw, and ground the bevels for welding pretty easy.

I had to bore 3/4" holes out to 7/8" on my 3 point adapter arms and I decided to take it to a local man who does welding, heavy equipment repair and such. He charged me $15 for two holes, which seemed very reasonable to me. I also had to wait a couple of days, but I wasn't in a hurry. I think it would be easier on the bit to drill a new hole than to bore one out, at least that has been my experience so far. Zach

Friend borrowed my 7/8 drill yesterday.Tried to drill a 3/4 hole in a trailer draw bar to 7/8.Drill snapped off an inch back from the point.I am against step drilling and have said so many times on this forum.That drill was HS steel and had drilled many holes for me and stayed sharp thru many drillings.If you look at the break you will be surprised at how little steel is in a big drill web.If I knew what the drill was going to be used for I would have said no.I have a reprint of an Air craft book that advocates step drilling and another book that appears to be a word for word copy of the older book on step drilling.Those books are wrong.Friend offered to replace the drill but I said no.Just turned 75 and my shop work is winding down.Have not done any welding this summer.
