Never use a machine tool without the supervision of a qualified instructor.

Normalizing, like annealing, is also a process for making material softer but does not produce the uniform material properties of annealing.. A material can be normalized by heating it to a specific temperature and then letting the material cool to room temperature outside of the oven. This process is less expensive than annealing.
