View Full Version : Normalizing after welding?

For small parts, could one use a kiln to "normalize" the steel after welding? Any guidelines about temperature etc? Is it worth it?

What exactly are you trying to accomplish? Normalize, anneal, stress relieve, what? What alloy are you working with, etc.?

It would help if you were more specific about what it is, and how large, as well as steel, cast iron., etc?:)

Normalizing , Annealing, and stress relieving are all different, for different outcomes...do you know that normalizing is what you need? Or Annealing? or just stress relieving...or is that your question? Then why do you need it...or is that your question? Normally weldments don't need it...that we deal with here...welder carts, weld tables, and that type of thing...weldments that are used in racing, machine work, tool building may need it. So, what's your pleasure, Andrew?

I usually use a Big hammer to normalize my welding back into Normal:D
