Louis they need to be put in a punch press to achieved the necessary force to form them, I have access to them but pretty sure if you check around the Redlands area you will locate one.You don’t need a punch press...A simple Hydraulic bottle jack will work, The brass will be very thin. You will need to allow for this.. If my memory serves me correctly I think it’s around 6% Stretch.. The brass will also need to be annealed....400° for an hour should do it...
Thank you...I will add this to my notebook. I look forward to the challenge. David...quick question...do you think oiling the rims of the press will help during alleviate stress to the brass?
