Headlight clips

Hello everyone,
just a short update on my latest project.
After I finished the punch die set and had it hardened I went ahead and tried it out on my ironworker.
Since my ironworker operates via hydraulic ram, it pivots in a slight radius. This makes the spring steel break uneven and tear.
After talking to my guy were I got the machine from he recomended to use a H frame press. I am currently
building a 100 ton unit.
For now I have to take a break from taking this further since we are moving for a few months to renovate a house that we bought out of town.
So be patient, I was able to make one blank and it looks good. I will post some pictures asap.
