Programmable Heat Treating Furnace

Here are two additional items donated by Corning.  The first is a programmable Heat Treating Furnace.  Along with the Hardness Tester, previously donated to the Science Area, this gives FCW a start on manipulating hardness of steel fabrications.

The second item is a RAM EDM.  For those not familiar with Electrical Discharge Machining, this machine literally burns holes in metal using electrodes.  It is possible to create blind holes of odd shapes, or even create threaded holes in stainless steel.

Both units need some cleaning and wiring.  We have the materials, so it is just a matter of time (hopefully short) before they are on-line.  Again, many thanks to Corning for the donation.
