  • Case Hardening

    McMaster Carr has a case hardening compound that sounds easy to use. One pound for about $22 plus shipping. Anybody tried it? For small parts that you can get to about 1650 degrees F or bright orange it might work OK? Bob.

      If the case hardening compound of which you speak is Cherry Red, I use that myself and it works quickly and well on small items that you can heat to red heat with an oxy or LPG torch.

      There is a youtube video here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9tlsq2ESQz0

      And while I'm on here, if any of the Australian contingent are looking for Cherry Red, please PM me or email r-j-wardATbigpond.com

        it is in fact, Cherry Red, got it and it worked well for my purpose. Just two very small shop made drill bushings. They do not seem to be available in sizes less than 1/16. That's another story in itself. Bob.

          Drill bushes down to 0.013" are available from boneham and turner.
          Bonhamusa.com for the yank site.
