On behalf of Expert Village, I'm Terry, and I'm here to tell you today about building a wrought iron fence. This is what we use to make the vines and the branches that you see on the wrought iron fence. Right now I'm going to make a spear on the end of a picket for a wrought iron gate or fence using a forge and a throttle hammer. I'm getting my picket up, up to about three thousand to thirty-five hundred degrees. I'll bring it over to the throttle hammer. I closed the end of my pickett from the square tubing so that now no water can get in or out, and it also makes a security point. You can either sharpen it into a spear or leave it like it is.
