Stairs - Determine Riser Height and Runner Length
   Figure out the tread width and riser height based on the desired total 'Run' and/or 'Floor to Floor' height. Or conversely, if the riser and tread width is known, what the 'Run ' and 'Total Height' will be.

Do you want to measure the finger size to determine ring size needed?

HEAT TREATING - Use the color chart to figure out what temperature the steel is that you are working.
   Fixing or repairing shop tools? Making items from steel that needs annealed or case hardened?
This chart demonstrates the temperature the steel has reached as it is being heated. Each color change indicates a different temperature. To Anneal or Harden properly the steel must reach 1450 degrees - or according to the chart - Cherry Red.
TEMPERING STEEL - Now that you have annealed or hardened your item ( based on chart from above ) what temperature is needed to temper it or part of it's edge?
   Once you have annealed your steel item, worked it to the shape desired, or thickness needed, and then have hardened it, you may wish to TEMPER it, or a part of it, such as an edge, to finish it up.
Different tools need different tempering therefore requiring different temperatures to Temper it just right.
This chart demonstrates the temperature the steel, or it's edge, must reach before proper tempering for that specific tool can be attained. Chisels require a different tempering than wood engraving tools. Drill bits need different tempering than saws, etc., etc.
SCREW BOX FOR WOODEN THREADS. Making Wood Screws, Wood Nuts, Wood Threads the old way.
   Using old files Roy Underhill ( The Woodwright's Shop ) shows you how to make your own Screwbox for use in making wooden threads.
