Joshua States Posted February 5, 2021 Share Posted February 5, 2021 (edited) I have made a couple of different versions of these and my latest set is pretty versatile and works very well. So I thought i would share the design. I start out with 1.5" square solid bars and some 1.5" angles to keep them oriented. The angle iron was thin, so I welded in some 1" rounds to support them. I have the benefit of an automated stop system to keep them from compressing too far. Then I made a top die with 1" square solid that will index into the 1.5" to make 1" squares. And a 3/4" top die that does the same. Now I made an insert out of three pieces of 1/2" square that I can lay on the bottom die and make 1/2" square stock with either the 1" or 3/4" top die.

I've been there before.” The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.
