Just popped this guy out of the press brake. 4 days of making tooling and alot of scrap parts Iv'e got it producing almost complete parts in a matter of seconds. BTW part is .125 3003 aluminum, 2 inches deep and 29 inches long. I will grab some pictures of the tooling as soon as I pull it out of the press.
Thanks for looking, Jeff

To be honest with you, I'm not really sure what engine they are for, some type of inline 6. The customer is being a little coy with me. As long as he keep paying his bill I guess it really doesn't matter. I will get some pics of the tooling when I get it out of the press.
Thanks, Jeff

Here is a couple of pictures of the tooling. I am by no means an expert on this type of work so the tooling for me involves a lot of trial and error. I'm sure that someone with a stamping back ground could do it alot better and faster but what the hey, I got it to work.

Now that's some good old fashioned know-how. Reminds me of the endless variety of aircraft parts that were made that way. Nice!

Awesome work, Thanks for sharing, I know I am always interested in how parts are fabricated from scratch and the time and skill it takes to make them.
