THE SUMPTER MINER
PROPER METHOD OF TEMPERING
DRILL STEEL AND PICKS.
Drill steel should be tempered dark
straw color for bard rock. The drills
should be first heated and forged to
the proper shape and size aud
allowed to cool. Later, when the
sharpening has been completed, they
ahould be reheated to redness and
then quickly plunged and temperod.
The temper may also be drawn by
first plunging the reheated drill
about an inch and withdrawing it and
scouring the bit on a sanded
board, watching tho color slowly
descend toward the bit until it has
assumed a straw color, doo to forma
tion of iron oxide, when it should be
plunged several inches aud held aud
stirred about under the water until
ool enough to prevent destroying
Picks should be temperod a deep
blue. Drills tempored to straw color
are very hard aud brittle. If the
corners check and break off, make
the color a little darker, uutil they
will stand. Avoid overheating, both
in forging and In reheating to temper.
Tho amouut of carbon contained in
a steel has a direct influenco ou its
'"hardening" properties. A steel
containing one per cent carbon chu
be made as bard and nearly as
brittle as glass. The reheating of
tho stool is probably tho most im
If stool of 1.10 per cent carbon
boated to 700 degrees C. and plunged
suddenly into cold water, it is not
hardened; but If it be heated much
higher, say, 880 or 000 degrees C.
then cooled slowly to 700 degrees C.
and plunged In cold water, It ia

that often plunged drills are not
properly tempered, having been
Poor steel can not bo made good
by heating and hardening processes,
but good steel can be easily spoiled
by improper heating. Iced brino
(twenty per cent solution) cools aud
hardens steel more rapidly than pure
water, but is not recommended lu
