Episode Summary

Sears Iron Works
A behind the scenes tour of the sears Iron Works facility.The blacksmiths of this Ottsville shop heat and bend iron to their will for the repair and fabrication of fences, gates, and objects of art. Intricate scroll work on gates weighing more than 1,800 pounds takes skill, patience, and practice. A piece of work can be ruined if it is subjected to too much heat. Sears does work for outdoor public sculptures as well, where the durability of iron is desirable. For attachment to a Border Inspection Station on the Texas-Mexico line, Sears built huge metal butterflies. The colorful insect is of keen interest in that area and is often sighted in swarms.moreless
