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.
