    The Houghto-Quench K is a 7-9 second oil so just slightly slower than #50 parks

    I missed this thread initially but found it after searching. Thanks for posting this John. I am going through the process right now of getting some of the Houghton Quench K. The price is very reasonable. Actually cheaper than the Woco that was posted recently, and a fast oil more comparable to Parks 50. Right now my issue is that it is in Edmonton and they do not seem to ship. I will be picking up a pail if I can figure out how to get the damn stuff. Picking it up myself isn’t an option since is about 22 hours of driving. They suggested I have someone pick it up for me, or have someone local pick it up and ship it to me. So for the time being, I’m trying to figure out how to get that done.

    Do you have a fuel depot in town? Usually hidden away and supply to large companies like airports and such.

    If they carry that name brand you can have it shipped to them, after asking of course.

    Just a 5 gallon pail John. We don’t have any type of fuel depot in the area that I am aware of. They said it wasn’t so much an issue with shipping the actual product, just that they use a third party warehouse for some of these products so customers are asked to set up their own pickup or delivery. I haven’t gotten contact info for the actual warehouse to see if they will ship. I may just need to speak to them directly rather than the parent company, just haven’t figured out how to get ahold of them yet. I had considered purchasing a 45 gallon drum, which I could divide and sell to guys to make it easier for many, but the shipping issues there would probably be even more difficult.

    Just called and they said they actually have a distributor in Winnipeg, so that may work out well. The distributor is checking on availability and price and will let me know the result.

    Yeah apparently according to Houghton the closest Houghton distributor or dealer to me is in Winnipeg. If it works out that’s fine since it’s about 8 hours closer than Edmonton. I will wait and see what Winnipeg comes back with as far as prices and shipping and such.

    *BUMP* :D

    Did anyone ever follow through/ have any luck purchasing quench oil through

    Commonwealth Oil Corp.

    2080 Ferriss Road North, Harrow, Ontario, Canada N0R 1G0

    Phone: 519.738.3503, 800.265.3689
    Fax: 519.738.3335

    Or:

    You can send an e-mail to: inquiries@commonwealthoil.com

    Be it their Wocoquench line of 10-11 second oils or their access to the Houghto-Quench K that John mentioned?

    Asking here first before I email them!

    Also I thought I would bump this thread in case someone had got a hold of another type of quench oil ;)

    Heatbath customer service for Parks 50 are not very helpful, twice I have asked for a supplier for quantities suitable for knife makers (5 gallon pails and gallons like USA knifemaker are now selling), and they keep giving me U.S contacts to call but they always end up not wanting or willing to ship to Canada.

    So I have emailed them a third time and asked for a Canadian supplier that’s willing to sell in lower volume, we will see what I get back this time!

    One problem with shipping hazardous materials is the extra paperwork required and if anything like the stuff I transported a single paperwork error could land you in jail.

    Also more likely is only UPS will take the shipment which would add roughly $200 to the cost of shipping a single pail.
