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!

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

The description doesn?t mention whether or not it has a progressive action. I would email or call them to find out. I?ve read that some of the clones do not. I would not buy one that doesn?t. 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. I?m not sure if all 214s have it or not but I wouldn?t say it?s a deal breaker to not have it.

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

Where can i geht the plans for the Numatx capable c-Frame? I am considering buying a Numatx Sqeezer. If i get along with a rivet gun, a Numatx and a self built c-frame for my future rv7-a, i would go this path.

Thank you,
Patrick

Patrick,

PM me your email and I'll send you the plans for the C-Frame. The plans call for 3"x6" steel tubing which is not used much locally, but 4"x6" was readily available so the fabricator used that instead and it has worked fine.

I'm in the same boat hoping to get by with a Numatix and a rivet gun on an RV-14 and no DRDT. If you don't mind I'll drop you a line asking for the plans too.

Matt,
I we have a dimpler at 8A7 with your name on it from a builder that passed a couple years ago. See me or Larry B.
