    Larger capacity quench tank and strainer

    As a bladesmith it was time for new quenching oil. So that would also mean a new larger quench tank. Being it would not be easy to retrieve a dropped piece of steel or keep it clean of clay or other stuff I would also need a strainer basket for it.

    Made out of aviation aluminium pipe, and plate with a rubber mat skid pad bottom. The strainer was cut out of 3 pieces of wire mesh and hand sewed together with wire. A length of thin cable is used as a handle.
