Flame harden Start by bear48
Flame harden Start
After we cut samples we flame harden our O1 tool steel.

Here we have our metal ready to go under the open flame of an acetylene torch. We have reach white hot (our goal) or somewhere between
1450° to 1500° F. We must now very quickly submerge the piece into the quench tank.

Quenching in the oil tank by bear48
Quenching in the oil tank

After we cut samples we flame harden our O1 tool steel.

Here we are moving it around it the oil tank to get it cool. We are moving it around to prevent a vapor barrier from forming. A 
vapor barrier would cause uneven quenching and also uneven hardness of the finish piece.
