I actually do quench in canola oil. It seems to work well so far. I'll have to try it in the spring time when if it starts to stink I can throw open some windows before the wife gets home. we have one of those wall mounted ovens that is actually 2 separate ovens. We only use the bottom one really when we are having a holiday meal or something like that. I'll probably try it in that one.
I have room for one in my garage but my wife generally gets bent out of shape when I drag another tool home and I tell her that garages are not actually meant for cars and that it is a common misconception that most women have and that she shouldn't feel too bad for thinking like that. She ALWAYS notices when I bring home something new, she might not know what it is but she always knows its something that I probably dont need haha. My woodshop is in the basement and I think shes never gone down there more than a handful of times so a new lathe or table saw or gun in the gun safe? No problem, but all of my metal working/welding stuff is in the garage for weight/fire hazard reasons. It seems no matter how much money I make there is never any left over for me and my hobbies haha.
I'm really looking forward to this 2x72. Forging a knife is the easy part, finishing it and making it flat and everything is what takes forever. I've got all the steel, I bought the motor, and I just ordered the wheels from Oregon Blade Maker. Once they show up its time to start cutting and welding this thing together.
It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
