Those might not be burn marks

The person who had it before me beat the poo out of it with a metal hammer and drove the wood forward. Those bands you see were under the wood and are mainly rust (this thing was a mess)

It's just a guess based on what I saw.  Heating the metal enough to make it expand an appreciable amount is risky.  The rate of expansion of steel is 6 millionths (Yes Millionths) of an inch per linear inch per degree Centigrade.  That's a lot of heat.

Bingo. We used to make those back in my army days when regular water heater boilers were prohibited in barracks. It works very fast too.

 

 

Yes, I did something like that, and than one day friend co worker dropped it on a sink, flash and all. Welded.

And you need to go metric, because this millionth of an inch descriptions don`t really work in modern world.

Me? I'm very metric even after 20+ years trying to adapt to the local system. I just grabbed the first video I ran across that was not 5 min long.
