Default Thread on reverses

Mark, Thanks for the link. Especially interested in your pictures of plastic dies for the TM air powered hammer. Got one of those and starting to play with making a hotdog die. Hasn't worked out well yet but my lower die had no shape.

Doing reverses on anticlastic pockets by hand seems to work better for me at least for now. Your art is an inspiration to me when things are being difficult.


Thanks,

Hi John,
About your image of the curved hotdog, a hint to drill down into the 'dog w/dia. and blind depth enough to press in your hammer die "stump" - then weld - if not already done.
