I have been doing some more case hardening and here are a few pics. I have been primarily using 2:1 wood to bone charcoal, 720 C for about 1 hour, dunked in tap water with airbubling, parts tied to a short chain so they don't fall to the bottom. I bought a 1893, 1894 and 1897 marlins that I am going to caseharden after I reline the barrels, install new wood and blue.ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Hey guys I found this forum about 7 months ago and love it. One thing I want to point out is that photo bucket has pretty much blocked the photos you guys have posted. Unless of course you pay like 400 dollars a year have them shown. I have my own formula of color case I would like to show on here as well. Just have to figure out how to post pictures now.

Yes, unfortunately photobucket has destroyed a huge treasure of good pictures. So many that I find it overwhelming to try and restore them all to my new picture hosting site, and then again add them to various forums. Afraid they're lost for eternity now.

Long time lurker, had to join and post to save the pics in this great thread!
Photobucket Fix so you can see the pics that have been posted on forums.

None of the fixes work for me as PB wont allow me access with my adblocker program. Still no joy!
