    All:

    Can nickel silver wire (10 gauge) be hardened by heating and quenching?

    Thanks!

    This chart doesnt say anything about hardening but it does show an annealing temperature of 600-825°C . 😯

    Hi Tom and Paul,
    Nickel silver wire can be work harden (cold working) but not by heat treating.
    That’s an interesting link Paul. They seem to have a good selection of wire.
