    Be carefull you cannot controll distortion caused by heat treatmant, thats why all custom actions are finished after heat treatmant.

    i use a hand held brinell hardness tester , after heat treating forgings ,as has been pointed out you will have a risk of distortion ,test your workpeice and find out whether it needs treating first soft wil need a full heat treat with distortion risk ,too hard and a spell at the tempering heat will draw the temper with little risk.
