Please keep us updated on how it works for you I have thought of buying that exact one before.

Ps. Can’t beat that color or logo!

Having your own heat treat oven doesn't save you a lot until you run several hundred through but it will almost always double to triple your production since you don't have to build up a bunch to send off.
Have fun.

Yep, I did the math before hitting the buy button!
For me it wasn't about the savings in it, it's about doing everything I can in-house and really knowing what I have made and what my steel has gone through, and what it can go through and take as a knife.
I know the commercial ht guys are very good at what they do, but I would not learn anything from that experience.
I have programmed and run three ht and temper protocols, I am impressed with the very steady temps I am seeing.
I had read some old threads (several years old), that stated these kilns could not be used for tempering, that they would not hold a low temp steady. So far I have seen this hold at 400 and 450f for an hour with only a 2 degrees variation +/-.
Looking forward to putting it to work!

That is my motto to. If you do everything in house if issues ever arise you don’t have anyone to blame but yourself. Assuming the product wasn’t abused or something like that.
