I thought not long ago there was a link to a website posted where different types and grades of tool steels were described. Uses, heat treatments, etc were laid out well.

I thought I had the link saved, but I guess "old timers" kicked in. Anyone know of such a website and/or link?

A good book, if you can find it (I'm pretty sure it's out of print) is "Tool Steel Simplified" by the Carpenter Steel Co.

Ditto on the book from Carpenter Steel. Got my copy from Ebay.
