I'm thinking I need to cut the sheet down and anneal the pieces before I cut them in batches of 2 per cut. I knew copper work hardened but didn't know it got that hard that fast.. I've also considered making some from dead soft aluminum but I'm having a hard time finding sheets of pure aluminum in the thickness and quantities that would be practical.
Thanks Dave
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
