Can a Chrome Steel hardened Ball Bearing be tempered enough to milled or drilled?
Some sources suggest heating to a RED temperature, no higher, and then gradually cooled in fine wood ash or similar. Does this ring true with any knowledgable folk here?
I am trying to form a branch puller for large diameter copper pipe. I'd need to cut the 4" ball bearing in half and mill it to the right diameter needed.
