    Ah I see so with two different dies I could avoid to much stress on the guides ?

    Dovetail is not an option I don't have the right machinery for that, Alan could you draw what you mean with the last part ? And why does combo dies put a lot of stress on the guides ? I was thinking about the dies on a flat plate with four 10 mm holes in them (and four equivalent holes in the anvil part) and then a nut a bolt to keep them in place. Something like the hammers Geoff posted pictures of

    Okay I just checked how to make interchangeable dies, doesn't seem to bad, what's the best way to secure the dies to prevent them from flying off ?

    Okay thanks Zeb ! would it be enough to lay the bottom weld with stick and the rest filled with MIG ?

    Great .. Just realized : I dont have any equipment to drill in the I beams I planned on using :b so got to find something, im thinking mag drill maybe ? Lead is an option, though it is really hard to come by in Denmark due to enviromental laws. Would the 4-5" be able to weld with a stick welder ? or should I TIG them ?
