Has anyone ever made their own dimple dies (maximum size about 3 - 4 inches but square and round)? application is for thin sheet steel and aluminium. What material did you use, I have been told that hard woods and even hard pu / hdpe plastics can be a good material with the benefit of easy machining. I do not want to invest large amounts into tooling that will have very limited use. Any thoughts or guidance would be appreciated ..read more

Just looking for any feedback if anyone has used either of these hydraulic knockout punch kits? I normally use Stakesy’s for most of my workshop kit and keep looking at this kit from them; HHK-8D Hydraulic Knockout Punch Kit HHK-8D Hydraulic Knockout Punch KitFantastic piece of equipment for punching holes in steel and aluminium sheets. It makes a perfect clean punch without any damage to surrounding material. Unlike wobbly hole saws it will produce a dimensionally accurate h stakesys.co.uk But also looking at these on eBay as look identical... Read more ..read more

Hi My son wants to make some strongman equipment. Currently he wants "Dinnie Stone" handles (basically a round steel ring handle with a hanging tube for silly heavy weights). There are large and small stone "classes" so rings seem to be: Large 3/4 " rod ring 125mm internal diameter Small 9/16 rod 100mm id. Looked at DC iron etc and Boat Chandlers but they don't have rod diameter and ring diameter. If anyone can offer a couple of each I'd be pleased to pay . They can be open join...

Bending/slip rolls what am I going to do wrong?
MIG Welding » Metal Forming
by Martin Hocking
2M ago
I’ve been very fortunate to have some slip rolls land in my lap. I haven’t really got a clue how to use them properly. They are (I assume) fairly old with ‘buck and Hickman London’ cast on the legs and are about 3 feet wide and unlikely to blow away. They seem like a fairly straightforward/foolproof piece of equipment, but in my hands all bets are off! So is there anything I should watch out for when having a go? First thing that I’m not sure of is which way the back roller works. Most... Read more ..read more

Just unboxed this 18" bead roller. The reduced diameter on the end of one of the bars is longer so the die can't be bolted tight. No idea if this is another Vevor quality issue or is normal ..read more

What sort of bead spacing have you found to work for cabin floor panels?

I don't have much metal forming experience. I'm going for aluminium panels to build the floor, firewall and cabin area of my trials 4x4 buggy. What sort of bead spacings have you found to work? I'm planning on using a cheap eBay/Vevor bead roller. I'm keen to keep the weight low, as it's more of a half go-kart hybrid than a true 4x4. The 2.0 Fox shocks loose effectiveness the closer I get to their ~200kg per corner capacity. What's the thinnest alu I can get away with? I think modern cars... Read more ..read more
