I recently broke down and got rid of the goddards gook and bought some chevron type a quenching oil supposed to duplicate Texaco type a . All was
well until I started thinking I decided to set my quenching pan on a double hot plate so as to heat my oil more readily seems good so I quench my first blade and it takes a LOOOOONG  time to cool to room temp because its on a warm hot plate . How is this effecting my hardening anyone experienced this Huh? Im quenching with the oil at 165 and it goes up to 180-190

190 is hotter than I like, maybe you could turn off your hot plate a little sooner and let the oil cool to 165?

But what I would do is test the blades, edge flex and cut and see how they do.

I congratulate you for giving the Chevron oil a try.
