Creative metal workers


Recommended Posts

Who was it ..... that likes to make things out of metal. I lost the PM's from last year.

 

I have FINALLY found 2 original clips to fix my power window issue!!! I need somebody to make 10 clips to put the bezels back onto the base for each power window switch. I'll try to take a pick. the metal needs to have some spring to it very thin blah blah blah.

I use binder clips to make spring steel parts. They are cheep and work well. You can hammer them flat to get a 4"x2" piece. You can make most needed items from it.

I would cover the outside with blue tape, cut it flush at all edges. When you peal it off, you have a perfect pattern to cut your metal pieces. I would probably use a grinder or cut off wheel to cut away everything that is outside the pattern. ....... Another way, you could scribe the metal then cut to the line. but it's easy to go over the line. I think the tape will work better.
