toaster oven tempering

Recommended Posts

It works just fine. Dont trust the oven thermometer though. You dont need to modify the toaster oven at all. I would however stick a firebrick in the oven to help even out the temperature when tempering so, because the electric elements will cycle and cause a lot of varience.


I stick a firebrick in mine, and an accurate oven thermometer. Pre-heat it to what my tempering temperature is (usually around 400) and then put my knives in it after hardening to draw back the temper. The piece of twisted steel you see in there right now in that old picture was just something that i used to keep blades from laying with the bevel flat.
