heat treating stainless?


Recommended Posts

Hi Eric!

I don't know how familiar you are with stainless steels, but for the most part its going to require you owning a digitally controlled heat treat oven in order to do the job properly. Many of the time/temp cycles required are simply not achievable any other way. I have successfully heat treated S30V without one, but it was a very long experimenting process, and I wrecked a few hundred dollars worth of the steel before I figured it out.

Crucible Service Center on the net provides a lot of good information in the area your seeking.
