I was given almost 100 feet of Bandsaw blade a guy here on
s.e.m. tested it for me and it turns out to be a Boron steel...
(it was low on P, S, Ti, Al and Cu)
Read that 0.002%B is high enough to make it harden with Boron.
I go by what I call the "arrest point method" (eyeball) to heat
treat carbon steel and hadn't had any luck changing this bandsaw
blade's hardness. Got any advice? :)
