This is great Ben! Like you, I've built my own PID kiln. I've been following the tool steel supplier's heat treating procedure blindly, without knowing the why's and wherefore's. Now I get it! Thanks for the inspiring posts!OT- how about a little tool box pr0n? I notice you've got a nice collection of shiny snap-on stuff!
Great video. Over the past few weeks I've been trying to learn more about treating steel, but I was just having the hardest time understanding it; I've searched all over the place for information. Luckily I found a few sites that explained it a little bit more. I'm just hoping I'll be able to at least get the basics of this down.. http://www.pacmet.com/index.php?h=capabilitiesandservices
