Heat treating your new AF project

Post by Sandblaster » Fri Feb 06, 2015 2:27 am

Thanks goes to Roostius for this!!!

Make sure the material is 6061 and the welder uses 4000 series rod. If you don't put a vent

hole in the right places the frame will blow up like a balloon especially in the cradle area.

Tell the Heat treater to:

1) "Heat treat and age to "T6"

Note to heat treater* Write and tell verbally to call you after heat treat so you can go drop a

motor in the frame to make sure it's straight before final age. This is "VERY" important.

2) "Times and Temps to AMS 2770 only"

3) "Spray Quench only"

If you have any other questions ask and make sure you go over this with the Heat treater and

he understands it if he doesn't find someone else.

So much for this not being rocket science
If bikes are for kids I'll never grow up.
