I'm doing some repro chests, with forged ironwork held on with nails
from the outside, clenched over on the inside. Until I find some nice
ductile iron rod, I'm tired of riveting steel!
Any advice on clenching ? Should I just bend them over, or should I
try to turn the tip downwards first, then bend ove the main length
(hiding the point)
Which way should I bend the nails to clench them ? Along the grain or
across it ?
