So I was working on making a metal wallet/money clip. Like a big money clip to fit my CCards and money. I decided to use the metal from an old saw that I haven't used in a long time. You can see parts of the saw in some of the pics. I started out making a paper template then stenciling it on to the saw. My first attempt I tried to bend up the side tabs by hand. Didn't work Then I decided to do it right. First I annealed the metal so it would be soft and bendable. (heat it up and let it cool very slowly) Then I cleaned up the edges and made sure the dimensions were correct. You can see the paper stencil in the pic Then I started to make the die. I was going to press it so all the tabs would be bent up correctly. You can see the original failed attempt at the top. Here it is all shaped up. Then I cut a hole in the middle, so I could slide the cards out. I cut a piece of metal that is the same size as a credit card. I also made the piece that it would be pressed into. Then I pressed it in using a vice. It came out great. I tested it with a card. Time to bend the top, so i build a little jig. It was going good. A little crooked, but I tested it. Looked good. BUT, then it happened. When I was trying to straighten it, I heard a crack. All that was left was to straighten it, heat treat it, and clean it up. Here's the crack Damn! oh well. I have enough saw blade left to make another. I'm not sure if I will.
