  1. hello everyone :) I had posted on the old site, my job. my job consists in treating metal parts in a heat treatment + quenching furnace and in a tempering furnace. I work for nuclear / military / aviation and sometimes for formula 1 / rally ... all the pieces I do have a minimum 40-year follow-up, so my name too ... I will take some photos of what I have the right to photograph, to give you an overview of my work. my furnaces can handle small parts up to 6 meters by 1.50 meters. From next week I am starting a qualification in NDT Non Destructive Control (magnetoscopy and ultrasound), so I will be absent for the whole week, maybe a little more. I will post some pictures of what this profession consists of :)

  2. Ha ha ! Dude, that's what's up! I don't qualify for the bonus round when it comes to this stuff but it sure is an adventure for me to delve into the world of BIG BOY TOYS/MACHINES especially when you actually meet/participate with people you know who truly do have a handle on those things no matter what they are! That just makes it more fun man. I seem to learn more that way. They are also great sources for information if you have questions. Now... who wants to talk about taking 6 to 10 Chevy Impala steering wheel airbags and setting them all off at the same time while encased within an empty 50 gal drum or, an old washing machine? WOOF! You had better stand back for that one! You big kids should give a that once-go sometime. Okay, okay, maybe I should just stick to metal. Who knows what ideas others may get!

  3. ahahah cool you're a metallist too :) ... I see exactly what your job is :). so I will add a precision to mine ^^: the quenching furnace is gas (water / polymer and air quenching) and my tempering furnace is electric, sometimes I take care of an annealing furnace which operates under vacuum with nitrogen. so I make different steels: -super alloy for aeronautics. -HSS steel for cutting tools. -aluminum tubes for jet fighters . -and for 2 and a half years, titanium (dentist, surgery, car parts). -and zirconium (very hard to work). Of course everything that is control hardness / pyrometry control / geometry control ...
