You have to kinda form the edges to get the thickness. You can tap them over
a pc of metal or some hard wood. Try to make an air foil. It is not an exact
science. Right now I am working on some dies that will stamp these out so
you get a perfect horn. My first attempt was a very nice part. I will post
some pictures soon. Only problem was the air foil was in the wrong
direction. Nice if your flying backwards. Live and learn. If it works out I
will have them for sale.

Thanks. I must have deleted my question while you were responding. I found two web pages that helped:

You've first got to bend the lending edges to a 1/4" radius, then edge weld
the two pieces. It is fairly simple and the easiest welding you will ever
do.
