Gun Blue
« on: April 16, 2017, 08:51:01 AM »

Not really mining related but I am sure someone could fine a use for it on their steel parts.

5 pounds 100% sodium Hydroxide (100% Lye)
4 pounds Ammonium Nitrate (Sodium Nitrate may be used instead)
1 gal. Distilled water

This is a very caustic mix that is used in a steel tank only.
The Lye must be pure 100% like "Red Devil" or the kind used for soapmaking
It is for steel bluing only and it will not Blue Winchester 94 Receivers.It works Identical to Brownells Bluing salts.
Temperature range is around 260 to 275 deg F for the boil to blue the parts.


This gives a good run down of the process:

It was a bit darker than I was hoping but it looks great, and was easy to do.

Caution though! This stuff will melt your face like an ice cream in the dish washer!
