    Artisan 688 Rampmaster Trouble

    So I just got an Evenheat Artisan 688 with the rampmaster controller. I went to set up my first heat treat on a blade that is CMP154 and the recipe calls for 1900 degrees. I start to develop the recipe and for some reason the controller will not let me put in a temp higher than 1800 degrees...

    My latest

    Hey all, Here is my latest work. This is for my sister who wanted a med size kitchen knife. I'm not too fond of the color but she loves it so I guess that's all that matters. I would normally put a mirror finish on a knife but I'm sure this will be tossed in the dishwasher a thousand times...

    Harden 5160 and 15n20 damascus

    So I picked up some damascus scraps and I'm trying to grind small blades out of a few of the scraps. Is there an easy way to get this damascus relatively hard? Can I just heat it up with a small propane torch and quench it in motor oil or something? I'm not looking to get this stuff to 60RC...

    Does Sharpie Marker burn off while grinding?

    So I'm done with my first knife design and I want to transfer the design onto a metal billet. I cut an outline of the design using some graphing paper and then used some clear packaging tape to sort of laminate it. The idea was to tape the design onto the billet and then use a sharpie marker...
