well I did something , I made a annealing jig . I took a 2 inch section of one inch diameter bolt and ground it to a point and then found a way to suspend it and not have to try holding it till it cooled . then I took my oxy/acet rig and heated the pointed bolt to a bright red color and let it down on the reciever till cool to the touch . The only point of contact was the three dimples my first attempts created and the red hot end of the bolt. i then drilled and the tapped the holes perfectly , I am thrilled to get this phase of the project finnished.anneal 2.jpg
