Possibly, but that is a $545 set so I dont know how many would be interested....if there is enough interest I could let you guys do a group buy.....

How about a group buy for the smaller set? I could always use the larger dies too however I would use the smaller ones more often and need them to start off the set. Let us know.

I had a spot screaming for some flared holes in my track bar that Bandit had brought to my attention.

Keith/ How many folks would you need to get a group buy?

Buy the way I think this is the first thread to go over a 100 posts! Either OFN is getting popular or there are not enough people fabricating.


Rompn/ There was already a buy in on the 5 peice smaller dies set a while back

Well the original buy-in was because I did not have an extra $2K lying around for the buy-in and everyone wanted dies....Now I have been moving 1 to 3, 5 piece set a week. I probably wont do a group on the 5pc because I am already $100 cheaper than anyone else who sells them...

On the 3pc if 10 people would buy them I could do $480 plus $12 Shipping.....That would save everyone $65 or $70....I sell them for $545 but I sell them for a lot cheaper than LR wants me to sell them for at $602...

My old lady will probably not have very nice things to say to me but it won't be the first time. Ive made a hobby of the 5 dies I already have and having the other 3 would complete the set!


So count me in for the 3 peice large dies!!!

If you run out of projects, and start having withdrawls, you can come flare some of my stuff. I just dont have much time to get all my projects done.

If you dont have dimple dies yet, can always use "Redneck Dimple Dies" to get you by until you get a set....actually they are faster than the one's we are using.... But I think the largest size available is .45 Cal.

You think you have a problem Smashmetal.....this guy flared holed every sign in 5 mile radius of my house...he just cannot get enough.

Accuracy of spacing is a problem for some though.

Another finished product, Had to do a little hammer forming to get the tire to clear so I could keep my 40 flared holes.

Toot your own horn!!!

This is the result of complete bordum and the fascinating interest to scare the living S#$t out of people. I had the horn attached to one cylinder but it was only good for about 2-3 good bursts. I figured with some sheet metal and a couple of flared holes I could create a sumwhat decient portable horn.

hehehehehe

Still need to run all of the tubing and hook up a throttle of some sort!

Well it started as a little prank, but seen what that horn an a 100psi could do was just to funny to stop. It's really funny to watch a grown man hit the floor like a child or jump throught the ceiling! I was already good with one cylinder but I was having some flaring with draws, this is how I cope!

Awesome. What thickness is the plate? How did you bend it? I saw the other thread you started of the finished product. Looks great.
