Description: Bundles of thin steel form a confused pile when the ties break. The lengths are therefore very difficult to handle and heavy allowances for straightening are sometimes demanded. The following simple process, however, can usually rectify damage of this kind. Fix with a "frog" the end of the steel bar to a fixed point; the other end should be fixed to a second "frog" on a cord wound round a winch. This winch in operation will draw out the steel, which will become rigidly straight without appreciable lengthening. This should be a simple and speedy operation at a comparatively small cost. The quality of the steel does not suffer in any way from this kind of manipulation.
