Now I have a kiln on the way, I'm thinking ahead. I've always used titanium as my lock springs material, because you don't have to heat treat it.

I see suppliers have SS sheets and rods, can I heat treat these(see above)?
What temps/hold and temper?

Heres a little info on the USA knife makers web site.. I just found this today and copied it myself for future reference http://www.usaknifemaker.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=57_81&products_id=1390

(http://www.usaknifemaker.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=57_81&products_id=1390) Should answer your questions.

If the info your looking for is not there, Look at Admiral steels web page there data sheets probably have what your looking for. Good luck

I didn't find anything on these steels.

None of those steels heat treat well.

Sorry - I knew that but wasn't thinking. I have no experience HT these steels, but you can find datasheets here. (http://www.crucibleservice.com/Products.aspx?c=DoList)
