    I use a pickling paste. it washes off with water. occasionally I'll buff it afterwards. gas coverage is another big one. you may benefit from the use of a gas lense as well. this produces better, less turbulant gas flow, which will reduce heat traces. tighter your arc, the less the heat input will be.

    Yes it will. It's the atmosphere coming in contact with the stainless after the post flow stops while the peice is still hot that causes it to oxidize

    cool, i knew it was a good idea to increase the post flow time. didn't know a chamber would take the coloration out. learn some thing new every day.
    thanks for the help
    hope i helped

    feel free to shoot me an e-mail direct i have time to chat.
    summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.
