Come ye woodworkers, come ye metalsmiths! Gather and sing Kumbaya around the warm glow of heated STEEL as it passes its Curie point and begins to form austenite. Much to my own distinct and unabashed glee, this week's issue of Work contains an article on the subject of hardening and tempering steel. Yippee!
