Cast-Iron is an Iron item made in a cast.

To cast something, you basically make a mould and pour freakin hot metal into it. The metal takes the shape of the mould. Everyone knows this.

Cast-Iron actually has a lot of airspace in it (like a Mirage Bar chocolate bar) and isn't very strong. Casting is, however, a very cheap way to make something.

If you are trying to buy tools, you are better off getting stamped or forged tools. They are stronger.

Cast"-i`ron, a.

Made of cast iron. Hence, Fig.: like cast iron; hardy; unyielding.
