Looking for someone who can fabricate spring steel clips

Post by Erik Johnson » Thu Jan 02, 2020 4:53 pm

I am looking for an individual or company that can fabricate the spring steel clips shown in the photos below. Any referrals or any helpful advice would be greatly appreciated.

These spring clips are for a Troy windshield and allow the windshield to be positioned in the fully upright position or the fully down, folded position.

I can provide original but rough examples as well as drawings and photos.

What gauge material?
How many do you wish to have?
As you may recall, last year I did a production run of gas door flap springs

This is a project my father is working on.

He'd like to have eight clips made.

Four clips at .093" or 13 gauge.

Four clips at .050" or 18 gauge.

I'm basing the above on measurements of the two corroded examples that are in our possession. Originally, they may have been thicker.

No problem I will let Tim or Hank do it. I certainly don’t need another project!!

Les

no offense was intended...I didn't even see your earlier reply. Obviously the person with the desire and wherewithall is the person to do it. Hopefully whoever does tackle it will share the end result with us. Hopefully your toes will recover soon after my trampling.
