Reverse twist stand
What is the thickness? Can you make me about 10 feet of this?
This work was done by the groups founder, Buddy Leonard. Unfortunately he has passed away. The work is not difficult for any smith to accomplish that has a vice, a torch, a couple of twisting wrenches and as much hex stock they want to twist. It takes practice to keep the twists uniform. You have to heat short sections and work them a few inches at a time. The group has a couple of members that should be glad to help you with this. Thanks for inquiring.
