What’re the benefits of quenching in denatured alcohol? (aka
methelated spirits, meths)
Do you dilute it?
I know that meths is slower than water, ie the metal cools down
slower. And from memory stg comes out cleaner, so I guess there
is less oxygen in it.
If there is less oxygen in it maybe there’s a case to be made
for doing the Satsuo Ando method of pouring an ingot (usually
through water) through meths?
