    That chart is exactly what happened, on the right, bottom to top. I kept the heat going on the top of the 18650 tube to get that pretty light blue.
    Thanks for posting yours, looks great! and thats what im saying its really an easy process! honestly my lock ring is smoother now it doesnt get stuck as easy when fully spun, so another +

    Read that my little hand torch goes up to 2400 degrees. Should work just fine.
    thanks! honestly it might be easier with the smaller torch. mine has 3 blue tips coming out of the nozzle and im assuming yours would have 1. making it easier to really fine tune the colors you want. good luck and post when its done!

    I am definitely going to try heat treating my Magneto tonight. The stainless steal looks cool but some color will definitely give it some character.

    ut oh, was there a coating on the hanger? thats a good point to burn the hanger before using it. hopefully it didnt ruin it!
