Ric, I'm sorry you couldn't figure it out. Point was that if you weren't there to see the traps go in and you weren't there when they came out. Then you really don't know what happened. I grew up in a very mecahnically inclined family. My father ran his own refrigeration business. I've been around things of this nature forever. I really don't tink I've crossed some "line", but if you want to ban me for something so trivial as this?? Help yourself life's too short. Ric, your a moderator of a trapping board,,,,, not governor of your state. LOL

How about this then... The traps were bad before you put them in the boiling water?

(I'm not governer either, but I'll ban ya quicker than Ric will... LOL)

I'm closing this post.

Note: It is not possible to destroy the temper of trap springs at the temperature of boiling water. Particularly if the traps are boiled for a reasonable period of time, say a half hour or less. You should be able to boil a trap clean in a half hour. However, I don't believe that exposures over that period of time would be too injurious either.
