Thank you good sir, for the warning, I have indeed seen some of the risks
involved, but the blacksmith I learned from for years used this method to
protect the metal from rusting.  I do not believe we ever put red hot metal
in, but just hot metal.  It always created a lasting finish on the metal,
and his teacher did the same.  I know that if the metal is too hot, it can
cause a problem..but I will be happy to call you and discuss at further
length the risks involved.

Good lady please call me before you start quenching hot metal in oil. It has
a real possibility of creating a large fire. I am an amature blacksimth and
also create and sell blacksmith oreinted videos (sorry for the plug) and
will be happy to help. I however do not type and so long answers on email
don't work for me.

I have forwarded your message to a blacksmithing friend in the East  
Kingdom who can probably answer all the questions you are asking  
here. There are also several blacksmithing mail lists available, some  
of which have a number of SCA members on them.

You might also find some of the files in the CRAFTS section of the  
Florilegium useful, such as:
