    Fast Quenching Oils

    So I got to thinking the other day after having a discussion with a local maker about fast quenching oils that are used for steels like (1095/w1/w2/26c3) the standard being Parks 50 and wanted to get some weigh in from other makers on their preference of fast quenching engineered oils. So I...
