  There are several of these.  First is Colvin&Julthe.  Good starter book on the subject of steels and their fabrication.  Tiis pub is what led me to start monkeying with the electic arc furnace.

Next is one I dug out of an old metallurgy text on the various alloying elements, and their effects.

Followed this with a few chapters from Oberg's book on heat treat.  He covers some different ground than J&C.

Last is James Bacon's book on blacksmithing.

If you work with metal, the information in these books is either something you already know, or something you need to know.  Enjoy.

Northumbrian, Sagitarii, I owe you two for the help you've given me in finding how this works, and the software tools it takes to work it.

Thank you "Old Coot" this is great info for me. Being "color challenged" makes it difficult to heat treat the old fashioned way, with temps and times it gives me an edge. The wife was never enthralled with standing by waiting for a particular color to occur. North had sent some info on building an electric kiln and now all I need to do is get a good pyrometer.

Here is a picture of my setup, I took a used two piece Kiln and separated it in half, (it was 18"X18") using the top portion and the bottom plate. I then added the PID controller and SSR with the High temp Thermocouple and rewired it through the SSR..
