I've tried a number of things to achieve this precision, but am
less than happy with the results. Anyone have a bright idea?
Could you etch instead of stamping? Then the backs and edges
wouldn't be distorted.
I assume you have a good reason not to solder first, then stamp...
My only other idea is to do the patterning on a sheet, re-sand the
back, then cut the strips with a really good, big bench shear... I
used one at the Revere Academy that didn't distort my metal at all
and could be set to cut repeats of the same thickness. Sigh. Can't
afford one in my little operation.
