    Heart break

    Thanks Howard,but in the past I made 5160 core with 1010 skins with no problems at this stage,once happens similar crack at quenching totally,but resolve the problem quenching only the edge portion. I think there are many problems in this and not only one,if we think the principal purpose of sanmai is high hardenable steel core with soft outers by obvious reasons it is no logical thinking in make one with steels with similar hardenability no sense for me. Saludos desde Mexico

    Heart break

    Your answer is very logical and useful Alan, and your sugestion, but you suggest that quench in water for example than in oil?????, I normally harden the cable in warm brine with great results,but 5160 is a oil hardening steel Im afraid to try it in water or brine. Yeah maybe a thinner core would work, recently made sanmai with a railroad spike and 5160 in a thiner section and work great,but honestly I am very dissapointed with my failure. Thanks a lot.
