I tried a search but came up with nothing. How do you all heat treat W2? And what temp to temper at? Might as well find out if normalizing is special process too.

Alan you really need to do a video on how to heat treat high carbon steels, with emphasis on non-magnetic testing, decalescence and recalescence, water vs oil quench and so on. Sticky that bad boy, or maybe make it's own section!!!!

If I had the YouTube account and any kind of video editing ability I would.  I did a whole three-meeting class on the subject for my local guild last spring, and it was well received, even by the non-blade guys.  

But I don't, nor do I have time to learn video editing.  Thanks, though.

I've dabbled at this.  It takes me so much time that I started financially supporting a few of the youtube channels that I regularly follow.  I'm not a wealthy man, but a few bucks a month is the least I can do for some of these folks.

Hey Jerrod;  It is obvious that you would be one of the go to guys for this.

maybe you could give making such a video a whirl....................;)

If ya can't be good don't git caught  !!                                        People who say stuff can't be done need to

                                                                                                        git the hell outta the way of people who do stuff   !!!

Show me a man who is called an expert by his peers         

And I will show you a good man to listen to ......

Show me a man who calls himself an expert

and I will show you an egotistical asshole...............!!

I certainly don't have the time or skills to make the video, but if I am ever invited to an Arctic Fire to give a metallurgy spiel I would try very hard to make that happen.

maybe you can do the filming and you know all the talky stuff and some one else can do the editing

Not sure when the next one might happen, but we'd be very pleased to have a legit metallurgist speaking at the next one Jerrod. Until that day.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly." -- Theodore Roosevelt

@Paul Carter and for anyone else interested in heat treating W2, especially for Hamon development, I have posted this elsewhere on the forum and here it is again.

This is a dissertation of sorts, from John White (now deceased) a noted ABS master smith, well known for his amazing work.

“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.
