I know frizzens wear and lose their spark after a while (like some of us old fogies) so how do you go about getting the surface hard enough to throw a spark again?

One way is using Kasenit or Cherry Red. I get mine from MSC Industrial.


  • Thoroughly heat the part to cherry red in color. Be sure part is completely heated for best results.
  • Coat part in Cherry Red Compound. Cover all surfaces to be hardened. Compound will blister and harden. Reheat part to cherry red color.
  • Quench in water, oil, or let part air cool, then brush off excess compound. Cherry Red is water soluble and excess can be removed with water and a little brushing.


You can use a torch or a forge. The trick is to get the total area you want hardened to the cherry red color.
