    Hey guys I was thinking of getting some equipment and starting up a heat treatment service out of North Vancovuer, BC Wondering if itr would be worth my while. WOuld anyone be interested or am i wasting my time ? I would have comparable prices to whats ouyt there right now but probably a little cheaper and alot cheaper than sending them down south across the border..

    ANyone have any comments it would be much appreciated

    I can't speak for anyone else but i do all my own ht. Hard to say what the demand would be vs the states.

    I do my own HT as well but then again, I pretty much stick to what fits in my oven so I'm limited in length. I don't know what I'd do if I was trying to do a sword. I wonder if specialty heat treating (ie molten salt) for longer blades has a market.

    There are people with forges that delve into stainless steel knives occasionally and the price of a furnace is prohibitive for them so a heat treating service always has some potential.

    I have done heat treating on tooling for a shop that needed to be hardened and main heat treating service was back logged so there is always that option

    Do my own heat treat in salt.
