The dies and frame are made from A36.26% carbon structural hot rolled steel, which allows for a lighter, but very strong tool. I can make dies to order from A36 steel, or a higher carbon or alloy steel if desired at an additional cost. The opening can accommodate stock up to 3 tall. The mounting brackets have not been drilled, so it can be custom mounted for your application. It can be mounted on to a 3" x 5" steel plate that can be as thin as 1/8 thick, or bolted to a bench, held in a vise, or on your anvil.
Does not include steel stock shown holding the dies open. I chose to use 3/8" bolts for the construction of this tool because the vertical spacers can move side to side to accommodate dies that are a little less thin, or dies a little more than 2" wide. Bolts also allow you to easily modify the tool as you see fit. Welding or riveting locks you into to just one size.3/4 thick vertical spacer bars can also be attached to the tool for thicker dies. Suggestion: To extend the life of the striking end of the dies, it is recommended that you use a brass hammer.
My goal is to make affordable tools, especially blacksmith tools, for anyone from hobbyist to full time smith.
