Thumbs up English Wheel Panelbeating

English Wheeling machine.

Wolseley Hornet Swallow sports

multi-part videos
by a fellow named Andy Kissack
goes through building a new body for an old English sports car using traditional, simple panel beating techniques...

starting with #1

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pORiCkDE_7I

lots of great info and insight into how bodybuilding was and is done using simple tools... he does a really good job of illustrating it ..
Just a straight down to earth approach..

Thought Mudbug, particularly, might get a kick out of it...

BTW... worth sifting through his other videos for gems as well..

I did !

The entire series ought to be good information for making panels out of aluminum...

You just wanted to throw a craving to finish the planned English Wheel project on me. I've been collecting various pieces to make one for several years... Toooooo many projects and not enough time to get to them

Talking

Dave

you will find that he was not very concerned about numbering or organizing his video collection..

So... you might find it useful just to step through his entire library...

TONS of really solid info contained there...

and well worth a couple of hours watching...

Thanks for the link to the videos. It was kinda hard to get past the mouth breathing camera man, but very good otherwise. First time I saw someone anneal AL with a carbonizing flame was Jesse James. He didn't burn the smoke off.

I'll agree. Very informative. Much of what he mentions is more apt to be lost on those not involved with this work for many years. I also agree for the most part that this work is indeed a lost art of the craftsman body maker. Not panel maker. I mean a 'body' builder.

Always facinates me to watch an artist do his thing. Thanks for posting it.

Holy cow, I just got throught watching hours of Keith Fenner with his turn wright machine works videos, now summer is almost here and you point me to hours of metal shaping videos. More knowledge is always good, cool stuff.
