Large numbers of them, in a box.

And that's why they don't get jokes about someone's socks or pants staying upright when taken off.

Yeah, they just give them a stony stare

Sure, but you then have to productively work with it at those temperatures. The required machinery has lot of applications, enough that you're probably TL 6 by the time you get it working.

Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase, "get your rocks off".

Look, sir! Look, sir! A dwarf called Knox, sir!
Knox in rock socks.
Knox rocks in rock socks.
Knox with holes in rock socks.
Knox with holes in rock socks sucks.

Yes. This. I have turned my tongue to mush so many times in the last nine years.

Ayup. Which is why I specified Steampunkish, which gets around such mundane TL considerations. If it could have been done real-world it probably would have been even if just experiments.

But if you strain the existing technology at the time, as a few genres do a lot, you can do it. But it'll be an experimental and/or inefficient process used for a character's gear or as a McGuffin.

But a fantasy setting with either or both of Heat and Shape Stone plus Microscopic Vision and Shape Metal, it's not too hard to do. Although it probably won't be general issue.
