In this valuable book Tubal Cain takes the reader beyond the superficial or the simply practical with explanations of the composition of steel, its additives, and the effects of different temperatures on its constituents.

With a grasp of what changes are actually taking place in the metal the care needed in following the practical processes described becomes understandable and will lead to better and more consistent results. Flame, salt bath and furnace heating are detailed, with information on accurate measurement or recognition of temperature levels.

Contents:
● Iron & Steel
● Principles of the Hardening Process
● Heating and Quenching in Practice
● Tempering
● Heating Equipment
● Casehardening
● Other Heat Treatment Processes
● The Measurement of Hardness
● Home Construction of Furnaces
● Safety Precautions
● Thermocouples and Pyrometers
● Carbon Steel Cutting Tools
● British Standard Steel Specification Numbers
● Hardness Conversions

For the average small workshop operative or model engineer the discourses on tool material, hardening and tempering will be of most use, and in this connection this book replaced the author's earlier Hardening and Tempering Engineers' Tools, providing a broader-based, more detailed and up to date examination of the subject.
