I Forge Iron

Forging and heat treating S5 steel

Recommended Posts

"Heating for forging must be done slowly and uniformly. Heat through at 1800 – 1950°F, but avoid prolonged soaking, and reheat as often as necessary, stopping work when the temperature drops below 1600°F. After forging cool slowly in lime, mica, dry ashes or furnace. S-5 should always be annealed after forging."


they also have a bunch of info on heat treating
