I used to have a jar of brass shavings that I used for bluing parts. Those who know me will be amazed but I actually pitched it a while ago. The steel swarf probably won’t do you much good as it is contaminated with cutting fluid, however brass I cut dry. In brass you get two types, very fine shavings generated with a graver and much coarser ones from my bushing machine. I will start saving them…

Oooh! The locksmith idea is a great one! Might be a good resource for brass for small castings. Thanks!
