Re: {Collins} strap slug rack KWM-2A



Guys, those straps are made out of Beryllium Copper and not copper.

Copper will work harden really badly and also stretch at first before it
gives in....  I would not use copper. These straps are getting harder to
find but you need to look for the right material.

Jim,


Hobby shop or auto (engine) shops use thin copper sheets as shim stock.
