You are still an idiot the you missed the point. failed miserably ,hot steel into cold water makes steam this is what edd saw in tonys video. Like an idiot anti gunner liberal Democrat you rail blindly looking for validation.small man that you are you resort to name calling you are the turd in this bb punch bowl .
If you simply dropped a piece of insoluble steel in a drum of cold water, there would be no immediate change in the molecular structure or composition. If you simply quenched a red hot piece of mild steel, there would be no significant chemical change in the water or the steel either.
On the other hand, if you dump a red hot crucible containing steel parts that have been cooked for hours in a mixture of carbon rich bone and wood charcoal at over 1400 degrees F, then BOTH the steel parts AND the quench water are changed chemically. If you don't think the water has changed mc, you should try drinking it or washing your eyes in it. You could fill your aquarium and watch your tropical fish die in it. You could even pay a water testing lab to tell you that the contents of your quench tank now have a higher, more alkaline pH, and it is no longer pure water. And I would be willing to wager a substantial amount that is precisely what a good testing laboratory would tell us.
I don't expect you to understand or accept these facts mc, because you are also blind and ignorant to the fact that you accused me of name calling in your reply to me, while simultaneously calling me ugly things like an idiot and a turd in the punch bowl. What was really nasty and ugly was comparing me to a liberal Democrat. All the other things are just sticks-and-stones, but comparing me to a Democrat is the rudest insult imaginable. I thought we were friends...
So hopefully we all learned a little here mc.
We learned a little about the chemical reactions that occur during the charcoal color case hardening process, and the chemical compounds involved... We also learned something about the chemical and molecular changes that happen to those compounds. The steel changes both physically and chemically. And the charcoal and quench water are changed as well.
We learned that Ed knows more about the case hardening process than you. We also learned that when Ed wants to, he can spell, write, and use punctuation better than you could on your best day.
We also learned that things like Manners and Civility aren't really all that important to the folks who whine and cry to Dave about such things. If that were important, they would be crying to Dave about you, since you have been engaging in name calling, rude and nasty insults, and following Ed around and disrupting his Threads for many months.
We learned that they are not calling for you to be banned or Moderated, and they are not crying and wringing their hands because you post your insults and vitriol while using only the initials mc, instead of your full name. We haven't seen even one complaint from Preacher or Gladys Kravitz or their pals. So once again, we learned that you can learn a lot about guns on this BBS. But if you pay attention, you can learn a lot about people too.
