I Forge Iron

Beginning of a Guillotine Tool

Recommended Posts

Started with 2.5” x 3/4” bar stock. A36. 

It is hard to tell from the photos, but I notched two 6” pieces of the bar stock.  The four short pieces that look like 3/4” square are actually just strips I cut from a scrap piece. I couldn’t find any actual 3/4” square stock. The cut side will face away from the die, leaving a smooth side facing the die. 

In one of the pictures I have the parts all stacked together as they will be when finished. The 1/4” plate that fits over the die at the top and bottom are not shown.  I haven’t cut those yet.  I still have the base to cut as well as the hardy shank.

My question is how do I weld all this together without binding? Any help will be appreciated.

i forget where I found the design.  Likely on this site or the BAM site
