Thats the best explanation I've seen yet, thanks.
I have that book but it woffles on a lot about metallurgy and other stuff and doesn't tell me in words of one syllable HOW to do it grrr.
Is silver steel then steel with a high carbon content??

Cheap and nasty from Hong Kong, all they are is a six inch nail with a carbide tip brazed on. But if you are ordering cutting tools from Richon anyway (highly recommended), just add these to your order.
Cheap and nasty they may be, but this quantity should last you for many years, and for the price, they are not worth making yourself.

I have a pdf document on hardening and tempering which I scanned some time ago from my old 'Workshop Technology' book from when I was at 'Tech.' way back in the '60s (is it really nearly 50 years since - Tempus Fugit). Send me a pm with your email address and I'll send it. The book was aimed at school kids and young apprentices and is written in quite plain English and has some theory and a bit of 'how to do it'.
I do agree with Bogstandard about scribers though. The only time I make anything like that is if I need it in a hurry or if I'm trying an experiment. In your case it may just be for practice of new skills
Let me know if you'd like a copy of the pdf.

(is it really nearly 50 years since - Tempus Fugit)
It's rather frightening isn't it? 50+ years since I started work. 50 years next Feb since I passed the driving test. 40 years since I got married. 37 years since the eldest was born. Etc. etc. Where did the time go? And the saddest thing - what have I to show for it?

The really scary bit is that Tempus is fugiting faster every year
I must admit I don't have much to show except for two very clever and able children who are proving valuable to the world, and quite a few that I have helped along the way as - I hope an effective - teacher in my later career.

I just came across these - Look under Eclipse original scribers halfway down the page. You will only ever need to buy one!
