Cone Die

Cone die

This is a cone die. It’s two lengths of 1.5″ solid round bar @ 24″ long. The bars rest on pieces of angle iron that are raised 2″ up from the base. ┬áThe die allows me to hammer sheet metal down into the center space. The slanted configuration of the bars cause the sheet to roll upwards into a volumetric cone form.

I built this several years ago after attending a sheet metal forming workshop at Haystack.
