If they are new buy one. Grind it. It should roll like cold butter.Sparks different too. Then drill little. Ductile makes spirals like steel and cast iron makes chips .
The ductile some times is represented as cast iron as they are casted and of iron, but not cast iron as we know it .
They also mostly use a support rod as they will bend and break .
