Making copper post caps using a hydraluic press?


Recommended Posts

When doing parts like this die speed is a critical part of the process. Slow-no go. Fast-forms like butter.
This part may be able to get by with a single die, and stamping as only the point is getting maximum stretching. Depending on thickness of the annealed stock you are starting with.

I would be way more concerned with theft than anything else. With portable power tools like recip saws and the like,tweekers can get through a lot of barriers more easily now.
