Question Where to Get Some Louvers Punched Into Sheet Metal Near Tulsa?...

I've got a plate of stainless steel that i'd like to get louvers punched into, then i'll polish it and use it on the front of my moto radiator. Anyone know where I can get some louvers punched near Tulsa?

okgearhead is starting off with a positive reputation.
Check with Dave Lewis at A1 body shop Broken Arrow, if he doesn't do louvers, he'll know who does.

Dave wasn't there but his son was--they don't do louver punching anymore. Hot Rod shop in Sand springs doesn't either. Some online hot rod forums mention 'Doc Parsons' of Tulsa, but no one says how to contact him.

Ron,
Did a quick Bing search for Doc Parsons in Tulsa. This is what popped up, and give you a start in finding him.

What happened to the fun - General Discussion - Texas Open Wheel

Also found this page if your willing to take a drive to Morris.

Thanks Mike. Ya, I saw that one in Morris too, but figured there's gotta be someone closer to Owasso. I'm not in a hurry. Heck, i'm even toying with the idea of making my own louver punch.

I did find a site that showed someone making his own punch. I'll see if I can find it again.

I found one on the HAMB hot rod site. The guy used a couple plate steel pieces welded together and a grinder to get the rough punch shape. Then he shaped the female plate hole and cut the slots into the sheet steel to make punching easier. He used a big hammer to make the louver punches. I would use a shop press.
