• ♦ COLD WATER ANNEALING. A correspondent of the American Machinist calls attention to the old method of cold-water annealing reported to be highly successful on the common grades of steel. It is to heat the steel to a dull red, and then holding it in a dark place until the red disappears and the steel turns black. The steel is then dipped in cold water, and can be easily filed. Of course, this method can only be used where it is desired to anneal the end of the piece, as it would be difficult to cool the work evenly. For small profile machine-cutters, etc., it is very handy, because waiting is unnecessary. Another way of testing the "dipping heat is to allow the piece to cool gradually, at the same time rubbing the steel with a piece of' dry white pine. When the1 steel is nearly cool enough to dip, small particles of charred wood will rub off. stick to the steel, and glow momentarily. When the action ceases, dip. ♦
