pressing engagement

or shall i say, some fun in the shop !
i had a project that required some pressed sheet metal. that is, scroll
elements pressed into 16 gauge steel. i formed the scrolls from 3/32
inch welding rod . masking tape held them to the sheet metal in the
desired pattern, then i sandwiched the project between hard (steel) and
soft (lead) sheets and using the forging press, 30 tons did the job.
have fun , mark

Sounds like a good idea. Roughly what size were the scrolls?
