DIY Bluing Tank?
Has anyone here ever made a bluing tank themselves? I did see one on Midway for about $40 + shipping and while that is relatively affordable, I'm only planning on bluing two rifles.
I've decided to give the rust blue process a try after reading a bunch on the net. One site (Laurel Mtn Forge) in their instructions said that a large diameter PVC pipe, capped with the top 1/3 opened up along the length could be used and just pour boiling water into it over the rifle.
I'm thinking that while this may work, maintaining a steady and high enough temp would be an issue.
I've considered using black iron sewer pipe capped and cut in the same manner as I could apply a heat source to it, but I'll have to compare cost with the Midway unit.
Any other ideas for a say 40" long bluing tank for under $60?
