:) Yes, gixxer there is another Sandy Hook(North Eastern, KY) population around 2500 on a good day.

block thanks for the information, thats what I was looking for, this is the first time I have used any of the cpm steels and wanted to get it right the first time.
just remember that all kilns read different so it could be + or - some ( i had to work up to those #s )
best bet is to have a few test blanks like 1 inch square that you can do some tests on at least hardness
You can get test cones from pottery supply sites that melt at set temperatures that are made to calibrate kilns.
