    "but it doesnt make swords :("

    Be glad it doesn`t, any sword made in this manner wouldn`t be worth having.

    I don`t see how it couldn`t. I wouldn`t make a hand rail using this machine. It would be asking for a lawsuit.

    From a decorative standpoint, ok that would be a good machine to have. From a practical standpoint, anything weight bearing would be as brittle as a sugar window...

    My grandpa on my dads side used to make wrought iron fences, screen doors, and other things with a lot of twists like that, my dad calls it scroll work.

    Zero: Apparently you don`t know much about metallurgy, they anneal the iron before they work it like this. It still takes a good deal of power to bend it, just not as much as tempered metal.
