Hi Heredith --

I'm not sure how much help they might be, but have you tried the American
Society for Metals,

They may be one of the ones you already know about as a publisher of
expensive books.  But I can assure you they are full of facts about metals.
I am familiar with two series of books -- ferrous and non-ferrous -- that
had tables of characteristics of thousands of alloys, including magnetic

These books are probably hundreds of dollars each now, so you might want to
look at them in a university library before buying.  If you don't care how
recent the data is, you might try to get used ones on ebay.
