Absolutely. Easy. You should be able to anneal that with a torch or a BBQ or something. Just heat it up and then let it air-cool. Then send it out to have it heat treated after you're done. Hate the idea of custom consumable parts though. Might also try giving any of the custom sprocket mfgs a call?
