    Alrigth ! Thanks for the tips, i'll be sure to try it.
    I've seen similar methods but i've seen them called "straigthening jigs", and where used After the quench.
    I'm using junkyard steel (old ferrier rasp) rigth now so I don't whink that 600f is gonna be enough to actually harden the blade...
    but If I get it hotter coper and alluminum risk melting, And I guess steel plates will keep the blade hot longer and ruin the whole process, correct?

    The copper and the aluminum will not melt simply with contact of the heat treated blade. It will draw the heat out and spread it evenly throughout the plate. Having air blow over it all also dissipates the heat that the plates absorb. This is only a method to air cool/plate quench. This is not a method to straighten blades. I only mentioned the weight on top possibly contributing to less warp post heat treat.
