Hey DAWGS!
I recently got the computer controller for my Smart Kiln, it's the same exact unit used on the EvenHeat kilns. I'm having a little trouble programming it, if one (or 100) of you guys that know how to program this thing can give me some specific instructions on how to do this, I sure would appreciate it. The main programs I need it for is 1095, which would be to ramp straight up to 1500, with a 10 minute soak time, (the soak time is because the 1095 I have is extra thick!). The next one would be for 1084, ramp to 1475, with a 5 minute soak time. If any of y'all know the recipe for ATS34 I might like to know that one as well, I might be using some of that in the future. And the biggie, I want a program for annealing, which would be to heat up to about 1600 for most 10XX steels then reducing the heat by 100 degrees every hour, I think, if you all know a better or the correct way to do that, I would rather use a tried and proven method. I've got it installed and it is working correctly, but the directions that came with it suck! Thanks for everything y'all can do to help, Rex

Greg,
Good info in there, not just for the programming, but all the HT'ing "destructions" are great! Thanks, Rex
