Everything You Need To Produce Beautiful Color Case Hardening
At last, a convenient, easy-to-use process to help the gunsmith create beautiful, genuine color case hardening. Color case parts with their subtle shades of blue, gray and straw really give a gun a true custom look. For a modern firearm, color case hardening can create a unique, one-of-a-kind gun. Plus, renewed interest in the old west has brought many old and well used guns out of retirement that need to have faded color case hardening restored. Our detailed instructions take the mystery and witchcraft out of the process. You’ll want to experiment with the ratio of wood charcoal to bone charcoal to get just the right mix of colors. We have assembled two, easy-to-set-up systems with all the essential items to immediately begin creating those wonderful case hardened colors found on many older guns. Our Premier Kit brings together our large capacity heat treat furnace, with our crucible and tongs, plus two types of charcoal and all the supplies necessary to set up a complete color case hardening system. Our Standard Kit has the same, large capacity crucible charcoal and supplies, only without the furnace. We offer this kit for those who may already have their own heat source capable of heating the crucible to 1450° F.
Our kits provide everything you need (except a quenching tub) to set up a color case hardening operation, and at a substantial savings. Compare the cost of the Premier Kit to purchasing each item separately and you'll see a nice savings.
