Outdoor wrought iron stair railing – Forging is an old material; the word “forged” is the medieval past tense of “to work.” The iron is heated in a fire or forges until it is malleable, and then hammered and pulled into shape before it cool. Unlike cast iron, forged items can still be bent after they have cooled, but considerable force may be required to bend an outdoor wrought iron stair railing. Applying heat to the rail to facilitate bending.
Mark the center of the elbow on the railing with a pencil. Make sure the point is clearly visible. Mark the ends of the section to bend when necessary. For example, if a certain section of railing should be bent and the rest remain straight, mark the points of the section in the middle and the end to be bent.

Grip both ends of the rack, just outside the area to be bent, with wolf-jaw pliers. Align them so that they can be comfortable when bending the outdoor wrought iron stair railing. Don goggles and thick leather gloves. Apply heat to the center of the area to be bent, slowly expanding the heated section until the entire bending area glows yellow-orange color.
Turn off the heat source and start bending the railing. For a freehand bend, simply violence pliers and turn the metal into the desired shape. Apply more heat when hinge begins to resist, and then proceed with the design. Allow the iron to cool slowly before handling it.
