    I built a Parkerizing setup in my spare time

    parktank.jpg

    It's 36" long by 6" x 6"
    I made the burner out of 3/8" Stainless pipe, and shrouded it to keep the heat contained on the tank.
    Since I took the photo, I added an oil bath tank, and a continuous flow water tank as well.
    The control is a BBQ control knob. Works well. I'm using Manganese Phosphate, and it does an amazing job.

    Here's a pair of Garand receivers that i did last week. I wish I'd taken the time to take pictures of them before I did them.

    I would imagine so. I haven't tried it, as I mostly like doing surplus rifles, which are usually parkerized.

    Looks good, both the setup and the Parkerizing.

    I may have to hit you up in several months, when it's time to refinish my Mauser. I got a new NOS in white 762 Nato K98 barrel, and I only assume it can be parked.
