Default Numatx C Frame

I'm looking for a C frame for a Numatix squeezer or a source for someone (particularly in Texas) that will make one. I have the plans for one but I'm not a great welder and my supply house can only order the steel in a 20' section and you only need about 5' to make it.

Any Ideas?

As I have never seen these plans and researching for my own build, I wanted to ask if this allows you to use the Numax to dimple skins instead of having to buy a DTDR2 or a traditional dimpler? If so, seems like you could save some money going this route.

Thanks,

Keith

Default Yes, the C-frame can mount the Numatx hand-held portion

Yes, the C-frame can mount the Numatx hand-held portion for dimpling skins. There are two different variants of c-frame plans: One for scratch building a complete frame, and one for modifying a DRDT-2 frame.

Default ATS squeezer

Looking for feedback on the ATS C squeezer. Any feedback on the squeezer or the company selling them? For $550 for the set it seems to be a good deal compared to others.

Thanks in advance!

Iíve bought several things from ATS. No real complaints. I have their drill on backorder.

The description doesnít mention whether or not it has a progressive action. I would email or call them to find out. Iíve read that some of the clones do not. I would not buy one that doesnít. At full speed my cp-214 would be nearly unusable.

Other than that it appears to be missing the short stroke option that the cp-214 has. Iím not sure if all 214s have it or not but I wouldnít say itís a deal breaker to not have it.

If you do end up getting it I would get the adjustable set as well. Itís completely worth it vs washer shims. A 3Ē yoke is also nice to have. Ideally a no hole version.
