now to make a couple test coupons for figuring out how to nail the HT on the W2

If you have a controlled oven, follow these instructions: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Y8X4r3wskCYO_DYxSGIQ8WmWT0Wf-T2v/view?usp=share_link

 

If you are doing the hardening in the forge, follow this method: https://youtu.be/ZZhx_Rr2Fzk

Got an order from a Pitmaster customer for a traditional Butcher (bull nose) knife. I'm making 2 one lighter about  .223 mm at the heel the other  .310 both about 8 inches. There Aeb-l with bolsters I cast out of a boat propeller. BTW one is sanded to 240.

Worked on the HT oven. 2.5" insulating firebrick and 1" ceramic insulating board. It's quite heavy but it's built like a tank.

 

Edit: interior dimensions are 6.5"x6.5"x19"

:lol: yeah, it's the new trend.

 

Seriously, I just took the shot as I was grinding welds.

Can you roll it over so they are on the side wall instead?

Of course, it's square. There's no door and electronics on it yet. As I said, I was just grinding some welds :P, I don't plan on using it with the elements up and down. 

 

Sorry, I wasn't sure if you were serious or not.

Got an urgent order for a 10 1/2 in K tip so got that cut out, tidied up and hardened. It is going into the tempering oven soon and while there I will carry on with a couple of short sword sized blades

Some hand sanding to do but I have bought a plunge platten from  84 Engineering so that should make for a bit of help in that regard.20221113_134820.jpg
