    Wouldn’t have known that in high school but I learn so much from this site.

    Stainless steel is ferrous, but it may or may not be magnetic.

      It depends on the grain structure. I can be austenitic, martensitic, or ferritic. Austenitic grades are barely magnetic, but will be come more magnetic if work hardened, like bending it or drawing it through a die. The deformed area will be more magnetic than the unworked areas. I have been retired from the industry for some time, but I don't think the basics have changed much.
