Ductility is a measure of a material's ability to undergo significant plastic deformation before rupture, which may be expressed as percent elongation or percent area reduction from a tensile test.
A forge is a type of hearth used for heating metals, or the workplace (smithy) where such a hearth is located.
Forge welding (FOW) is a solid-state welding process that joins two pieces of metal by heating them to a high temperature and then hammering them together.

A furnace is a device used for high-temperature heating.
Gas metal arc welding (GMAW), sometimes referred to by its subtypes metal inert gas (MIG) welding or metal active gas (MAG) welding, is a welding process in which an electric arc forms between a consumable wire electrode and the workpiece metal(s), which heats the workpiece metal(s), causing them to melt and join.
Gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW), also known as tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding, is an arc welding process that uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to produce the weld.
Grain size (or particle size) is the diameter of individual grains of sediment, or the lithified particles in clastic rocks.
A grinding machine, often shortened to grinder, is any of various power tools or machine tools used for grinding, which is a type of machining using an abrasive wheel as the cutting tool.
The hardenability of a metal alloy is the depth up to which a material is hardened after putting through a heat treatment process.
Hardness is a measure of the resistance to localized plastic deformation induced by either mechanical indentation or abrasion.
Hardy tools, also known as anvil tools or bottom tools, are metalworking tools used in anvils.
Heat treating (or heat treatment) is a group of industrial and metalworking processes used to alter the physical, and sometimes chemical, properties of a material.
