Bronze Clinching Iron
I received my new bronze clinching iron, and I’m sure it’s going to work like it should. The quality of the finish is less than I expected for what I paid for it. The body of the iron looks like it hasn’t seen more than an 80 grit sanding, and the edges are all sharp such that it does not feel good in my hand, and I have working man’s hands.
I’ll spend some time going through the grits and softening the edges and it will feel so much better. Will it work better? Probably not, but a clinching iron is at least 40% hand feel and this one as delivered fails that test.
