The ability to perform heat treatments in the home workshop can be a very useful asset, enabling you to make, repair and maintain tools, to anneal and normalize work-hardened metals, and even to create decorative finishes. Heat Treatment is a practical guide to this valuable range of workshop techniques and how to employ them safely and effectively.

Featuring step-by-sep photography throughout, this book covers:

  • An overview of metals and their properties
  • Building a heat treatment oven for the home workshop
  • A practical guide to case hardening, flame hardening and tempering
  • Annealing and normalising techniques
  • Decorative finishes with colour case hardening, oil blacking and enamelling
