    Is there a pattern/striations in the steel? or is that just cutting marks?

    Yea, you can see the layers, but the saw marks make it hard to see. Good eye Z.

    Nice post Hoss, wrought can be tricky stuff, so many different grades of it. The cleanest stuff I had was from inside a mine shaft, it was a structural grade piece off a coal truck. The latest stuff I used was trash in comparison, just thin barrel hoops and heavily cider corroded. But it worked after further refining as you have done.
    I watch it being re-rolled on the big rolls at Iron bridge sometimes. Big half chain links, out of the furnace at welding heat, couple of dinks under the steam hammer to straighten it out, then back and forth through the rolls into 2 inch 3 meter long bars.

    Will, are the rolls at Ironbridge an historical thing or a working shop.

    A bit of both to keep them going. I'm sure there is some funding involved and I think most of the guys who do the work are enthusiasts. But companies like Chris Topp and co, who re-rolls iron himself commercially, make use of the facility, or leases it and the workforce. I'm sure that helps keep it going. I have a load of pictures somewhere. I will dig them out and put them up somewhere. If you come to the uk, Iron-bridge must be on a Hoss must visit list.

    Rolling, cutting, the bars, and annealing in the furnace. And why does this thing rearrange my photos?
