Heat treaters guide App

27 posts in this topic

From an old fashioned guy who has no cell phone and had to look up the meaning of app. When I started learning about blacksmithing in the mid 1960's, I found a U.S. Government Printing Office booklet, 1966, that has helped me over the years, It is National Bureau of Standards Monograph 88, "Heat Treatment and Properties of Iron and Steel."  Admittedly, one must be circumspect in its use, because some material may be outdated, but it is surprising the amount of heat treatment info that can be applied to current steels on the market. It is on line free at Google, Books.

  Frank, here is the book you mentioned online:  http://digicoll.manoa.hawaii.edu/techreports/PDF/NBS18.pdf


By the way, it was nice visiting the other day.
