Re: Lead Patenting/Oil-tempered vs. Induction Heating

No, David, I don't, but here's something else your client might be
interested in. I have a client that uses cryogenics (liquid nitrogen) to
impart exceptional properties to various materials, including various metal
alloys. If there is any interest in applying this technology-which is
entirely environmentally friendly and more energy efficient than any
heating technology-I would be happy to make the connection between the two
