To ensure that the process was completed correctly, someone called a Puddler would stir, and watch over the metal. The puddler was the most highly regarded worker. Being a puddler was dangerous. It required focus, strength and stamina. Most did not live past forty, after wearing out their bodies at work.
The use of puddling was the reason for the huge boom of the iron industry in Great Britain. This new type of iron was used to build new machines, especially for new means of transportation. Also puddling led to the creation of steel, which was stronger, had a higher quality, and helped build greater things.
