Salt Bath Annealing

Postby buckeye43210 » Tue Apr 11, 2017 5:51 pm

Found an interesting video on salt bath annealing system using a mixture of salts in a Lee melting pot.
No more messing around with one case at a time in a cordless drill, taking wild guesses at temperature based on colour: now you can anneal hundreds of cases per hour while controlling temperature to within a few degrees. What’s better, you can repeat that temperature cycle tomorrow, next month, or next year, with far better consistency than you could ever get on one of those carousel-and-torch annealers than cost several hundred dollars but have no way to reliably set the flame.
