Joshua States Posted June 13, 2016 Share Posted June 13, 2016 I did a site search on Google foor this topic and only found one discussion that didn't yield much, so I'm asking again. I recently started using 1095 in my Damascus and I have this multi-bar pattern all welded up and ready to accordion cut.I normalized 3X and set the bar to anneal. The bar measures 1-1/2" x 7/8" x 8"Into the Paragon:Ramp up to 1450 @ 250 degrees per hour, hold for 1.5 hoursRamp down to 1200 @ 100 degrees per hour hold for 1 hourTurn off oven.This would not cut on the bandsaw (at least not very easily, it killed two blades before cutting 6 lines each about 3/4" long)A quick call to Hancock, and we decided to try it again.So, I put it back in to the paragon.Ramp up to 1350 @ 200 degrees per hour, hold for 2 hoursRamp down to 1250 @ 100 degrees per hour, hold for 2 hoursShut the oven off.This is even harder than the first one. It is eating bandsaw blades before making a single cut.Any ideas or suggestions? Here is the bar: “So I'm lightin' out for the territory, ahead of the scared and the weak and the mean spirited, because Aunt Sally is fixin’ to adopt me and civilize me, and I can't stand it. I've been there before.” The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.
