Issue #196 May 2007

An actual sample of work for a project is helpful in many ways. It provides a visual idea beyond what can be shown in a drawing for a potential customer, highlights problems that may be encountered when making the actual piece and provides an opportunity to record stock lengths and how they change during the forging process. In this case there are numerous parts that need to be forged prior to fabrication, and knowing exact finished lengths derived from the sample prior to bending scrolls, etc. is essential. Issue 196 covers the step by step process for making the sample.
