Never heard of this before, which shows you what I know. But most annealing machines I have see hover around $1000 . . . the salt annealing process seems like a very reasonable alternative, if you are comfortable working around 1000 F liquids.

The more I learn, the more I realize how little I know . . .

I have been following that thread, not sure I want anything to do with 1000 degree anything.

I found plans on line for building your own using a propane torch and rotating cake pan. Looks way more complicated than it is to build, now I don't have to do it with hot fingers and kinda fun to watch it in action.

The simplest way to anneal is with a candle, wet paper towel and just a little time. A package of votive candles and a few paper towels from the kitchen, some common sense (which is sometimes lacking in forums) is extremely easy on wallets. If you are looking at doing thousands at a time, look elsewhere.
