Default Re: Working on Frames Question

Tabogon, you need an special custom design die set. Very expensive but very high productive.

They´re custom build in forged steel for cutting the sheet metal with the form and design you want; and there is another die set for bending each piece accordingly.

You may look for a machine shop in your area that makes forged steel die sets and request a quotation. If you need small production, it´s not worth it.

The forged steel die sets may produce more than 5,000 (five thousand) pieces per day.

For small production you may as well cutting the pieces by hand with a saw blade and bend them with a hammer.

I hope this info is what you need. Please do not hesitate to request more specific info if you need it.

See You in the Road !!!
