I recall when I was in high school, the Smithsonian had a bar of steel hanging from the ceiling, with a rope ties to each end and a strain gauge on it. I think it was 6”in diameter and maybe 3 or 4 feet long. You could pull on both topes, and the strain gauge would tell you how much you were flexing it. I got a few tenths of a thousadth.i was not a body builder.

So yes, you can definitely flex your cast iron top
