The XL Twister is just one of our range of  Ornamental Iron Machines

XL Twister

Code MC009


The biggest of our metal twisters is our MC009 XL Twister which makes light work of twisting metal bars up to 40mm x 8mm or 16mm square and is essential for those wanting to make lots of twisted wrought iron bars.


Using the same basic principle as it’s smaller Practical and Master Twisting tool counterparts, to create a decorative steel bar you grip the section of bar you wish to twist in the round collar at one end and the slide arrangement that can move freely up and the steel twister body. This helps ensure even spaced and consistent twists every time.

*All sizes are approximate and in mm unless stated otherwise

**Longer Twists can be achieved with care by moving twisted sections through the machine and then twisting the next section”

Tools are supplied complete with operating instructions and spare parts lists.

Please note: The maximum working capacity stated is for Hot Rolled Mild Steel Bar and Annealed Bright Mild Steel Bar. Working beyond these limits or with material of greater hardness may reduce the operational life of the machines.
