Hi again everyone. I have another tool that I am interested in obtaining.
The tool basically allows me to flatten 18 gauge black iron wire in an
easier and more consistent fashion than manually beating the wire
with a hammer.

I cut the flattened wire into wedge shaped rivets, which are then used to closed
chainmaile rings.

The design I had in mind is basic, but admittedly a little bit awkward, but
trying to avoid the need for CNC milling. The design involves welding
steel blocks to steel plates, drilling a total of 8 holes and welding
4 bolt blanks or 4 steel rods to act as guides.

Image

The end result should be a male part and a female part.
I place the wire into the female, guide the male part into
position and strike it with a hammer.

Because the force of the hammer strike is concentrated on the
wire, rather than being dissipated across the entire surface area,
this should allow me to more easily flatten the wire.

As always, I don't care about the cosmetics, so long as the end
result works then i'm happy.

i'm getting at it with just a hammer.
