WARNING: Machine tools present a safety hazard. Improper operation can result in severe injury. These topics are for non-laboratory study only and are not to be used in conjunction with the operation of any tool or machine described herein. Never use a machine tool without the supervision of a qualified instructor.
The elasticity of metals refers to its ability return to its original shape after deformation. All metals are elastic to some extent.

Metals with low elastic properties would be gold and lead. The elastic property of any particular metals is noted by their modulus of elasticiy that can be found in the Machinery's Handbook.
