  1. I tried Fike's method today and so far I think it looks pretty good. I haven't polished it up yet, but I think it worked! Thanks again guys. Patrick
  2. Thanks for the help guys. I'll be trying this stuff out tommorrow, but I don't have a digital camera, so it'll be a while before I can show what I've done. Thanks again. Patrick
  3. As with what was said above, silver is the optimum choice for a heat sink, but it is also expensive. Copper is a more cost effective option. What I have thought of doing before is something similar to what some people asked me to do with overclocking computer systems and that is making a radiator system. Take thick copper stock and silver braze some radiator tanks then make a reservior. Next run some copper plumbing coil between them. Then just set up a pump. I don't know. It's just a thought.

  4. I've been reading some of the stuff about hardening with satanite and finally got around to buying some. I have a few questions though that you guys could probably answer. What is a good consistency to mix the satanite for the blades? Is it a good idea to put a thin coating on the edge as Yoshihara Yoshindo does in his book with his clay? I have two blades I'm going to try this on. One is L6 and mild steel and the other is L6 and 1095(mostly L6). What quenching medium would be best for these combinations? What is a good color(or temperature) to draw a temper after the hardening? Any more advice will be gladly appreciated. Thanks for your help. Patrick
  5. Mushisushi, I read your link and am curious as to what proportions you mixed these ingredients in. What type of "ready mixed fire cement" did you use? Thanks a bunch! Patrick
