Quenching too soon?


#1

I always quench soon after I cast and I haven’t noticed problems.
What problems am I looking for? Annette

When using a de-ox alloy it is imperative to wait about 20 minutes to
prevent hot cracking. When hot metal is poured into a hot flask the
metal is still going through molecular changes as it cools down.
Besides, what’s the hurry? Best, Doug
