    [QUOTE=JDM61;1634469]That should work VERY well.......as long as you don't burn your shop/house down. But in all seriousness, at 450F, you are right at the smoke point for peanut oil. Safflower oil has smoke point of 510F. Are you concerned about the durability of the Fry Daddy parts? Those little devices typically don't run that hot.[/QUOT

    If the fry daddy dies, I will go to Goodwill and buy another one, actually I have a few waiting in the wings. As for the oil when I replace it, I will get something better, as for now it is the best the local super market had to offer.

    I am normally tempering at 400 which is not to stressful on the whole sha-bang.

    Cool. Keep us updated. An oil tempering setup would be nice and eliminate the need to buy a second oven. I already use a turkey fryer for one of my quench tanks and it would be interesting to see if you could get the same kind of accurate temp control in a tank that tall using a pid and heating element or burner somehow. What temperature do you use to temper your W2 razors?

    Hey Charlie, I have a patronizing suggestion for you...

    Maybe you only had it on the tablesaw and carpet for the photo, but just it case, I suggest that you keep that thing on the floor in another room. We all know that you've got the space to keep it far from anything else in order to keep you and your shop safe.

    Yes. The big room with the concrete floor seems like a good idea.

    I say this both as a friend thinking about your personal wellbeing, and as someone who wants that shop to still be around next year

    Ron, Bruno, I did the initial runs and testing with it on the floor. I am some-what comfortable with it now. I appreciate your guys thoughts on the subject.

    I just don't know about this Charlie. I was getting used to all your first generation tools being completely home-made. I expected a PID on a Radio Shack circuit board with surplus parts all soldered together...

    Mike talked back when about someone, I think in England, who was doing a combination quench and temper in 420 degree peanut (?) oil - similar to austentempering in salt. You'd have to figure out how much quenching the razor raises the oil temperature. Might be worth experimenting with this idea.
