Making Sheet Metal Toys

After the “Ghost” post I did a little more research on sheet metal toys for an upcoming post on sheet metal fabrication I’ve been working on for the “Let’s Build” series. I thought that I would share the videos I found. Here’s a video of the entire process.

Here’s a press in action.

A Chinese factory.

An old film about Mattel.

Here’s a SME video of die operations.

Another video.

It’s easy to get a good look at how things are made these days.  I hope that this post provides a quick overview and introduction to how sheet metal presses work and how the toys are made.
