New to this group and figured I would post a question.
Wondering if there are any metallurgist's on this group, or someone who
knows how to heat treat aluminum?
What I've got is 2024 in a "O" rating and would like to heat treat it
to at least a T3, if not higher. Thickness's I am working with are .032
/ .063 /.080.
I know there is a way to do this with an oven and heat. I have access
to an oven that is programable and could melt aluminum. It is also
programable to step down in stages, for desired times and temps.
Anyone know how to do this? If you could, try not to get to
technical, just looking for a basic way to do it if possible? If
there isn't a basic way, that would be a good answer also.
