Mondo if you dont mind what is the rate/dia/and length of your springs? Also how do you plan on making the dies. I must and very nice table and such a clean space. Lucky for me my garage isn't used for any cars, only my stuff.

Sorry I missed your inquiry when posted...
Springs are 5"L x 1" dia. I have no idea what the other specs are, I found them in an ACE hardware store. They looked to be about the right size for my application and for about $3 each I gave 'em a try.
Dies: Two angle irons welded to a flat with two more flats welded downwards with 1/4" threaded holes so I can use a 1/4" bolt to 'pinch" the die to the rectangular anvil. Similar for the upper die, a flat welded between two angles such that is comes down like a guilliotine blade into the angles below.
There was another posting to this forum that provided the inspiration. I will see if I can find it.

No problem Mondo.
I was courious, now I have a place to start for the springs. So far the ones I have found at the farm stores just dont seem right. Thanks for the info.
