Meet the new and improved version of the die! My thanks to olcowhand and TD&H for opening my eyes a bit. I think this will work much better. The 5/8" block is now 11/16" into the 2X2 with 2-3/8" blocks on either side. All was welded in with the Hobart 140 set on 4 with about 40 inches of wire speed. Take a gander at this:
Last pic is down inside where the push bar of the press will sit. I think this will do much better!
Looks pretty stout, should do the job just fine. Technically that is the punch, the die is the lower part.
