That's the problem here too. That and grabbing an hour here or there and going forward assuming that what you did yesterday was correct.
The templates here are the mounting ring for the big end and little end. I like to have them sprung out a bit and then clamp them in and tack into place.
I went with one die, it's too short by 10 inches but I do one end and slide down and hit it again. I need to get a 4 ft die for 1.5"

You have to make it two pieces. This is not as big but same principle. I would just use a gauge and just bend it

Too bad your not closer Gerry. I have several dies that could be cut down to 4'
assuming you're using a press brake.

Yes, I'm doing that, and I have a steel gauge. But now one will be 3 pieces.

They are the bottom of cyclones in the seed plant.

Yep, done another belt pulley and cut a keyway for them since....they keep coming back.

One cyclone sidewall has a patch of Fiberglas and duct tape, they want a curved patch on that too.

I am curious how thick the original cones were if they are wearing through from the flowing grain.

Having said that, there was a market for worn boards from wooden grain spouts from the old wooden grain elevators. The grain would differentially wear away the growth rings and create some very interesting patterns.

Are these literally cyclone style separators? If so, I wonder what is being cut from what? Ie grain from chaff or hulls, or dirt and small stones from grain?

They tell me they last a year. Mind you, they are operating 24/7 in the fall and 6 days a week during winter, and I don't see a ton of maintenance being done, mostly patch and go.
And as you know, there is a lot of dirt in fresh combined grain. Thats what the plant does, clean out dirt and remove weed seeds.
