I would never jump on a piece of cast iron to straighten it. Cast iron is very brittle and although every material has a certain amount of “elasticity”, cast iron has very little. As an example, scissors can be steel or cast iron. When I used to sharpen tools, I would get a pair of scissors to sharpen. Not knowing if it was steel or cast iron, I would attempt to bend one blade for better blade contact. It would snap letting me know it was cast iron.
