Wasn't there some discussion about sources of real, genuine wrought iron,
the stuff with the fibers of slag in it?  As I recall, people were
salvaging some fairly unusual stuff to get the wrought iron therein, but I
don't recall quite what it was.  Supposedly nobody makes the real stuff
anymore.

     Lawler Machine and Foundry in Birmingham Ala. (1-205-595-0596) does a full
line of cast elements and some forgings for the ornamental iron industry.
     Their castings are beautiful. Their forgings are also beautiful but pretty
pricey.

Try Crescent City Ironworks in New Orleans, LA.  They have a wide variety, sell
small quantities at good prices.  Sorry, but someone borrowed my catalog so I
don't have a number, but they're bound to be in the Internet Yellow  Pages.

Wrought iron is no longer made in the U.S.  Someday I think it would be nice to
construct a puddling furnace and make wrought iron for sale to people like you.
 I wonder if there would be enough of a market for this?

I have several thousand pounds of wrought iron plate in two thicknesses:
3/16" and 5/16".  This was from an old watertower so all pieces have
some curve to them.

The wrecking company was not gentle with it; (I bought half what I planned
due to the rest being too crumpled), we tried to cut along creases to
provide the greatest ammount of "flat".  Pieces range from around 25
pounds to 180 pounds. Surface finish ranges from very good to rough.

My price is US$1 per pound, FOB Columbus, Ohio. Volume discounts are
possible and if you plan to re-refine it and will take "rough" pieces
I'll make a substantial discount.  

Cutting can be arranged but will have to be negotiated.

I prefer to sell in person ; so that people can pick out their own
pieces;  (I hope to have some to sell at Indiana Blacksmiths Hammer-in
in June(?), Pennsic in August, and Quad-State in late September; however
I may be out of the country for any of those dates.)

BTW I have a friend who has WI barstock from an old bridge

He has 7/8", 1", 1.25" in round stock; 1 3/8" in sq stock and
7/8"x1.5", 1"x2", 1"x4" in bar stock.
(I believe that his round stock is a higher grade than his flat.)

Also US$1 per pound FOB, deliverable to SOFA meetings and Quad-State.
I can post his contact information if anyone is interested.

If I remember correctly the last wrought iron was last produced in
Sweden 20 years ago.There is no wrought iron being produced
commercially.If I'm wrong I would sure like to hear about it.

Well there is "The Real Wrought Iron Co" that is remanufacturing WI
frome WI s***in England.  The last working WI factory in England was
donated to the Blist Hill Museum, (of the industrial revolution, near
Coalbrookdale,  Ironbridge Gorge, etc near where Abraham Darby first
commercially smelted iron using coal instead of charcoal.....).

I have one of their price sheets somewhere if you would like the
contact information.

I managed to buy 6000 pounds of WI plate and so no longer have the
burning need to pay shipping costs across the Atlantic.
