Louver Press

Recommended Posts

Guy Gadois

In additiion to the bead roller I had a need to fabricate louvers sized for a 1:16 scale model. Using an arbor press, a Sherline vise and rotating vise base, I ground several dies of different sizes and machined an adapter to hold the dies and fit onto the arbor press. Louver spacing can be adjusted and pressed at any angle. The louver width shown on the press is .375 inches. One of the brass sheets shows a double row of .125 inches.

How are you indexing the spacing between the louvers?

Bill,

 

The pic below shows how the louver spacing and alignment are adjusted. The louvers shown on the press are upside down for display only. The louvers are pressed in a downward motion.
