How Do They Make Cast Iron Frames in Pianos?

Commonly called the frame, harp or plate, this iron mass in the piano withstands the 19+ tons of string tension.

"Every piano has one".
Umm....with the exception of wooden-frame pianos.:|
I was playing the piano in a zoo, when the elephant burst into tears. I said, "Don't you recognize the tune?" He replied, "No, I recognize the ivories!"
