Soy oil quenching medium?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. Just a quick question about soy oil as a quenching medium. Will it work? I have seen Tai Goo's crew use canola oil, but I can buy soy oil for really cheap here and its nice and clean(as opposed to used motor oil:() Any help is more than welcome! Thanks guys.

I've used peanut oil for quite a while with no problems, but when I ran out and added the cheapest vegetable oil I saw in the store I started having hammers crack after only 10 hammers. I believe the oil broke down that quickly. I'm making one and one half to three pound hammers, and quenching them in 3 gallons of oil. That's what I take on the road.
