SORRY, Been out of action due to a dental problem and will not be able to do much for the next two weeks, big show deadline coming up.
i did correct the die that i made. used the big clamp and set the drill press to add just enough of a cut to make the foot right. found that the cutting board plastic from Dollar Tree cuts straight, doesn't melt and is thin enough for my holder. the bottom of the extruder i have cannot take 1/2 inch thick dies so i am working on other stuff right now.
i did not realize how easily the square hollow extrusions twist. how does anyone make straight things????
