A look at Rejent Tool in 2013

Well things are proceeding apace in the shop these days. Over the last two years we’ve been pushing ahead and growing the shop in terms of equipment and technology.

I have a couple of photo’s, taken from the same spot over a difference of a little over 2 years.

You can see that the shop is much fuller and has much different machines in it. We’ll see what the next couple of years brings, perhaps a new shop?!?

A Simple Die

Just posting some images of a die I made. It came in for servicing and so I decided it’s be prudent to post some images of it for posterity.

A broad view of the simple die, it just simple accepts conduit and punches a couple of slotted holes in it. nothing special.

A closer view of the die. As you can see, the punches and dies are both insertable. Since the material it punches is quite thick, the gap is quite large, like .006"

Anyways, nothing too special but I figured I’d keep it here for posterity.
