Landlocked123 Posted September 9, 2015 Share #1 Posted September 9, 2015 Hi All, With my very limited experience, I know that if you heat steel to red hot and let it cool naturally, it will be softened or annealed. I also know that if you re-heat it to red hot and quench in either oil or water, you can re-harden it. I've always annealed brass by heating red hot and then immediately quenching in water. It seems to me that to a certain extent the brass tends to get "work" hardened, like copper. But it there a way to reverse the annealing process.
