So, I took about 5 feet of 14ga/1.6mm ($4.25) and made a soldering
nest 3 inches in diameter. I put the heat to it. It was very stable.
The idea is to provide an open base for general heating. Heating that
will bring the whole piece up to temperature evenly. Cooking one spot
is not what it does.
Annealed titanium jumbled up pretty easily. I then hammered it down
flat. If there are areas that stick up either twist them around tell
they stay down or heat them and hammer them down hot. It probably
took 5 minutes. Bill
