Alumium Stem Brackets – Aluminum brackets are an alternative to using HDPE stem plates. They are easy to make, but quite durable. Many aluminum frame Russian folders use this type bracket. The 1/16″ aluminum flat plate is available at most hardware stores. The aluminum is bent around the stringer tubing using a vise to achieve the correct shape. More details on this process will be added soon.
