To make the “arrow points” I need to cut 24 pieces of steel 2 inches long. I use this measuring instrument. Once set it is faster than using a ruler.
I grind them then bend them out. They are ready for rivets.
I use a center punch to mark where I want to drill a hole. Punching it keeps the drill bit fro wandering all over the place.
The hole is drilled. Now to drill through the other 2 pieces. The trick is to get the holes to line up.
The holes are drilled. I am ready to push the rivet through then hammer it tight.
This one looks good. It doesn’t always work out. Sometimes I have to cut new pieces and start all over again.
It’s not over yet. I need to grind the corners.
There we go. Not perfect, but close enough to be acceptable.
Next step: repeat 11 more times.
End of day 2.
