    Default Stickerman's Flat Jig

    I received my Flat Bending Jig from Stickerman yesterday (his version of 555th's design). His work is excellent and he is a GREAT guy to deal with!! I'm very impressed with the little details he added and his willingness to help a fellow builder. His instructions are awesome. If you want to bend flats, and haven't bought a jig from one of our other fine members yet (there is at least one other member, 555th who came up with the design, that was making a small run of this type) then I can recomend both this jig and this seller with no reservations!!!
    I'm going to bend a flat or two this afternoon and will post the results (and if my wife lets me use her camera.... LOL!)

    What are the "little details" he added? Can you post his instructions? What is the difference between his jig and 555ths? What is the price? Details are always nice.

    I received a box of Tapco flats yesterday, along with my new spotwelder from HF

    Life is good.

    When I received my jig I noticed two small pins in the masking tape that held the package together. I wondered what they were for, but after studying the design for a few minutes I said to myself "This Stickerman is a pretty smart guy" He added 2 little pins and two holes in the bottom plate that correspond with the outermost small holes in the center of the flat and this helps align them (he still recomends measuring with calipers). He left the pins undersize for both fine adjustment and to work with small variences in flats. This gets it very close to centered and allows very small adjustments without the other end of the flat moving out of alignment. He also used nuts that have a flanged and serrated head so that when you tighten them you only need one wrench.
    As far as the difference between 555th's original design and these there are a few small changes and then these are made with cold rolled steel rather than the angle iron. There are a couple of post here on the Forum that have pics.

    http://www.jtagconnection.com/flat_jig.htm This is a nice site with good pics and instructions. The Jigs look very well built. I'd recommend Stickerman if anyone needs a flat bending jig. I built 50 and sold out and don't plan making any more in the near future.

    I ordered mine yesterday. Anxiously awaiting my tracking #. This is pethetic, I feel like a 10 year old on Xmas eve. Today I got three more flats in from Tapco. My press from H.F. is supposed to be on the way. Thanks Curtis. TREY

    LOL, nothing wrong with being excited My welder took a crap on me today so I have to weld the bases up at another place until I get the money up to buy a new one. I'll get that one shipped out tomorrow since I was working on the base when the welder stopped working. It started just sputtering and then it wouldn't even feed at all. There was some weld on it, but I'm going to grind it down and re-do it.

    As far as ordering goes... instead of having a list and trying to keep track of who e-mailed or PM'd first you can place the order online. I am trying to get everything lined up to where I can get all of these shipped within a few days of being paid. If it gets to where it will take longer than expected I can put a limit on the amount of orders that can be placed. In the next couple of weeks if things go right I'll be selling the Tapco flats too.

    After we get moved into our new house if anybody is in the Kansas City area and wants to work on some builds I would be glad to supply the tools. By the time I'm done I'll have all of the jigs for the whole building process plus a park setup.

    I just went out and tried my welder again and now it's working just fine. That should work for the next couple of days, but a new welder will be on the way soon.
