To make sure the process goes well, and you get good colors, I'd use commercial bone charcoal. You could waste a lot of materials, and electricity experimenting to save a few dollars, and still end up with bad or no colors. I'd also make sure my box for packing wasn't any larger than necessary, as it's just wastes materials if you fill it with more than needed to accomplish the task.

Waynejaxfl;

The DVD is no longer listed in the items the Association has for sale. I will look into getting more made available as there have been a few other requests.
Due to the increasing cost of ammunition, there be no warning shot!

The growing federal deficit = generational slavery to the national debt.

I'm still looking for a copy too! But it doesn't show much pertaining to color case hardening. It's a staged sequence in that area of the film
