Being tediously pedantic, I'd agree that hardening/tempering must be
followed by grinding, to fix inevitable deformation. But then diameters
change, so the part might not be usable any more!
Tempering has been used here in place of the correct term hardening, but
it's just a post-hardening process to decrease brittleness. Both are
Waz's demonstration is thoroughly clever, cheap and easy.
