Hi! I was at our local gun store today (they get all sorts of other tools and stuff too) and saw a kiln in there. I wish I would have got pictures, but it's an octagon and about the size of a big boot box. I talked to the one of the guys there...apparently they tested it and it reaches 1800 degrees. It is electric and variable temp. I've been using steels like 1084 and 1095 where I need temperatures of 1475, so the temperature shouldn't be an issue. Hopefully this isn't a silly question, but would something like this work well as a heat treating furnace? I would probably have to put a rack in it for blades to sit inspired they weren't just laying on the bottom of the kiln, but otherwise I think it would work...but I wanted to ask the people that are more wise than me. Thank you!
