    I was fortunate enough to get a block of .4" Cheetah Stainless from Chad Nichols, and have started to make rings out of it.

    I've pelted the poor guy with an endless string of emails about the heat treat at etching methods etc.

    Was wondering if anyone else has any other pearls of wisdom to offer with regards to HT method/temp as well as the final etching? Chad has some directions on his site, but was wondering if anyone does anything differently, for particular results? Thanks.
