    D Day Cricket manufacturing

    internet search has netted various sources to buy, but none how these were made. would a die stamping machine to be used for the upper, and cut off machine for rolls of spring stock the lower? and a crimper to hold them together? manufacturing plant planned for the model railroad and thought this to be a good choice: raw materials in, finished product out, many interior details. thanks

    pre- 1950 packing material
