    Retsa,

    I just finished flattening some 1"x1" 16g pieces but I forgot my camera is at my office.

    You may want to pick up a 5lb Sledge Hammer.

    1- In the Vise with Mapp torch heat- needed cheater bar

    1- Flattened with 5lb sledge and Mapp Torch for heat

    1- Flattened with 5lb sledge NO heat- just needed a couple more hits with the hammer but worked easily enough.

    1/2" 16g should be a piece of cake.

    I'll post pics tomorrow.
