    Big sis is at 300 mm effective and little sis is at 265 effective.
    Do not tell me I can't, let me succeed or fail. Even a failure is a small success.

    Btw, big sis is going for a second round of mar normalization and HT. not happy with initial results.

    So the second quench went better!

    What is a "water steel?" Steel quenched in water maybe?

    Your exactly right! It is a steel that is made to be quenched In water. They are also called shallow hardening steels. But you can also quench them in oil providing that the quench medium is fast enough to absorb to heat in the time frame that the steel will drop below the 'nose'. That is the time/temperature frame that the steel will change from autentite to pearlite (basically).

    Interesting...thanks!
