_________________________

Doesn't "a cast iron stomach" means a stomach which is very strong than the cast'iron.
cast'iron can be an adjective that's why I thought for this.

Hello Bz,

I would like to share with you these sentences. I found in TOEFL discussion 26.

"W: Toy soldiers. He makes them. He's got a whole army in our basement- Bengal Lancers, Soaves, Beefeaters, hussars, you name it!- he casts 'em in lead, paints 'em, puts 'em in little, uh, dioramas, you know what I mean? He's good at it, too."

Have a good day:
Kati
