Hey can anybody help me with some forming issues. We are trying to form some 1/2 plate and no matter what we do it cracks. The only thing that seems to work is grinding out the stress point before forming. Is there a specific way to avoid the cracking all together? If anybody can help I would greatly appreciate it. Pictures will be coming soon.
