    Kmg problems

    So today was the first day I've been able to work in the shop all day for a while. While working my kmg just shut down on me. I felt the motor and it was hot!! So I'm letting it cool over night. But don't remember them having a function to turn off when to hot. Could I have a bigger issue??

    Cryo quenching

    Sure thing I am using Nitro-V and I have some D2 I've been needing to treat too. And I have been giving (in a sense) a Dewar I just had to pay the money to fill it.

    Cryo quenching

    Ok I have been giving a Dewar that does not have a bigger mouth and can NOT afford a new one right now. But I have some nitro v chef knives I need to do. How can I do those??

    Cryo quenching

    What is the set up for a cryo cycle? With liquid nitrogen? Do I just put my blades on a wire and put them in my Dewar to soak? And what about bigger blades that won't fit in the Dewar?

    also no. I wasn't aware I needed to check it. its steel pretty new and all the knives I've treated have harden just fine. it has been a proven oven...so far.
