Stress Relieving1000-1200° FCool slowlyStress relieve after rough machining
Preheating1200-1250° FPreheat time in furnace is ¾ Hr. per inch of thickness. Heating up to temperature as slow as possible.
Hardening1700-1750° FIn air. Larger sections may require oil quenching.Soak time is 30 minutes per inch of thickness. Minimum of 1 hour. Allow to cool to 125-150° F before tempering.
Tempering(See Chart)Complete equalization of temperature throughout the tool is essential for good results. Double temper. Recommended temperature is 400-1000° F.
