Would a kiln to control the temperature of a metal box filled with charcoal and my gun parts be the hardware to do a home charcoal blue? If so what would be the process on doing the charcoal blue without ruining like the heat treatment?

Hey 29,

Those are all good questions...

Like to follow along, see where it goes.

Have seen some really good "CARD" Finishes. (Rust Bluing)

Later, Mark

There's an article in the Blue Book on the process; sign on as an apprentice at Turnbull's, or expect a STEEP learning curve.
How would an evenheat kiln work for doing a charcoal blue? I have a brownels half tank that can fit anything up to 20 inches in. Would I fill it up with pure carbon charcoal, and leave it in the kiln?
