Ben Potter Posted September 17, 2008 Share Posted September 17, 2008 Greetings, I was testing my new HT set up (drum forge, turkey-burner oil tank) and ran into a problem. I was testing it on two blades one was 3/16 x 1 1/8 x 18 inches and the other was 1/8 x 2 x 15 inches both tapered from the spine to edge, and both developed forward curves and wavy edges. I didn't normalize either one( I know bad idea,my wife reminded me but I forgot) does any one know what causes this? Other specs. oil temp. 430 f quench tank 6ft from forge Thanks Ben P.S. Thanks for the picks of the drum forge Don, works great and with a really even heat.
