I've spent the last few days finishing up my first production run of pistol grip reinforcement plates. They are coming out great but are taking way to long for such a simple part. My usual course of action is to design tooling to stamp out sheet metal parts but I decided it would be better to do a small batch first and "save time."
The way I thought I would save time was by using a fixture plate in the Mill to cut out the shape and drill the 3 holes.. But after that was all done I was still stuck making the square punch and a speicial V-die to bend them.
I will be adding several products to my catalog in the next few months and the easiest to make things will be coming out first as I build momentum. Also, these products are going to be pre cursors to the really exciting things I am making.
