  • Can 12L14 be Case-Hardened?

    That be the question. 12L14 is just about my favorite steel when machining but does the very small lead content mean it cannot be case-hardened? I just finished a very nice jack-screw using 12L14 and thought it would be neat to case-harden the base... but then realized I would be smart to seek some wisdom from those who have it before I fire up the Sievert and open the can of Kasenit.

    Yes it can be case hardened.But 11L17 or 1018 is better.
