Sorry to ruffle your feathers Walt, and I don’t claim to be an expert. I wasn’t aware I had to be completely ignorant on a subject in order to ask a question about it. I do have a background in Mechanical Engineering and powder coating though and your initial statement was blatantly false, for which I wanted to set the record straight for other readers. Sorry you took it personally. I specifically asked if anyone had done what I proposed.
And again claiming 850 wouldn’t affect the frame at all without defining the duration is also wrong. It’s time sensitive. Look up tempering of 4130.
I’m not here to war with anyone or compare d*** sizes. Just looking for the truth and insight from someone who has already been there and done that.
