I love this site. Their are some really cool projects here. One has caught my attention.
Under the "Welding & Metals" link is "How to harden steel". They say to use "Necamp Powder" in the hardening process.
Does anyone know where to get this powder? I have searched for it online but can't find it.
Any help would be appreciated.
that gets asked a lot but I've never seen a good answer. anyone know?

I'd suggest using a 1060 or 1075 grade steel for easy hardening - for basic use.
Those and more advanced tooling steels will often have heat treat guides available from vendors such as admiral steel or the evenheat kiln company.
for low carbon steels, I'd suggest lookign up the 'superquench' method via google. I've got some axes made with the process and it works.
