  1. I've been trying to make ornamental baskets from 'wrought' iron (ie mild steel) using 6mm square rod cut into 4 even lengths then end welded. I have an Eisenkraft MT hand operated twisting & basket making machine. Problem I have is that to get the required shape I seem to end up with excessive twisting at the ends of the basket which causes the rods to snap. Any tips hugely appreciated.
