Re: Hardening V8 retainers: Any metalurgists out there?

I worked for a place that did case hardening.

They had a oven that heated the stuff to a specified temperature (cherry red I think), then they sprinkled a case hardening compound on it and quenched it.

You can buy the materials and do it yourself using rented torches, or any good machine shop can do it for you. I'll bet EGGE machine can do it.

Hope this helps.
