Well I have given up for this evening in disgust. I have been playing with some Nickel Silver trying to make a decent chape and have finally decided that the stuff that I bought was just too bloody thick for the job I am trying to do. I tried getting some 16 gauge and some 18 gauge stuff and apparently I was wasting my time. I need something more workable in a cold application. So, back to the drawing board. On the plus side I have learned a bit from this experience. I have a pretty good design worked out, I just have to put it into practice with some decent metal. Anybody else ever made a chape?
