    Little story. I was out in my 38 Chevy and wife called can you get me some bla bla bla at the store. Trying to be a nice guy I said sure. I went to a I think Kmart. I parked 2 football fields away from anyone else NOT a car any where. When I came out there were cars on both sides of me. Not a scratch but I was really P/Oed. Never again

    Thanks for the kind words fellas!


    This is the first sprayout sample... we'll view these again tomorrow in the sunlight to see the true colors...

    Thanks! Here's our paint sample with some sunlight added. The incremental lines to make the radius really show up, but quite a bit of pop in the sunlight..

    Sorry for the lack of posts on shop projects, we've been cleaning the shop for the 2016 MD Tommasini Metalshaping Class. Here is a new sand bag we made up for the class, made from a full cow hide, it measures 40" x 24" x 4" high. We had some loose leather left over, so the top was wrapped to provide additional protection from any sharp metal... This uses just over four 5 gallon buckets of saved blast media to fill the bag, so we don't need any holes letting all that pour out on the floor!





    Some of the projects include duplicating these repro BMW saddlebags in aluminum, and this Mopar hood in aluminum......








    Here Peter shows using the stump for tuck shrinking





    Here Peter modifies the heel of a ball peen hammer for less marking while tuck shrinking...





    Here it is in use....


    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plpfX1aPAI0


    Duplicating the hood....











    A local source was used to CNC a template for bead detail on some Model A p/u bedsides....





    Bead added....





    Motion picture version:


    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSD_RUh6bMg





    Close-ups of the results...








    1937 Dodge coupe door repairs... the lower inner and lower door skins are fabricated...








    A complex architectural piece that was shrunk, stretched, planished, and reverses added, all with the same hammer...








    Saddle bags in process...


    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fnapwrq0lzw


    after wheeling...





    Some other efforts of shrinking, blocking, and planishing in making a fender profile and rear corner of a T-bucket in aluminum...











    Two days in the books, two to go!

    Have you ever heard the phrase, "It makes my back hurt just looking at it"?
    Lots of amazing stuff there, but I doubt I could stand there and beat on it that long.

    Education is expensive. Keep that in mind, and you'll never be terribly upset when a project goes awry.

    Wow, great stuff!! Hard to believe how smooth that beading process is, a testament to your dies. What gauge was the
    the alum for the hood, and how many in the class?

    Love the videos too! You make it look easy, but your eye for getting complex shapes just right is incredible

    Thanks guys! Rich, we had eight students, the aluminum was 3003 half hard, .060 thick used on the hood..


    The final two days of the Maryland Tommasini Metalshaping Class. We had two stumps that we gave to students to take home, here is the final version carved....


    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yH-M21yUok



    I had some requests to show the mammoth sand bag with the loose cover removed... It saw quite a bit of use and came in handy!





    More repair parts were made for the 37 Dodge doors...




















    The crease or "swage" at the top center of the hood was difficult to locate through the paper pattern.





    So the upper and lower "crease" was highlighted by using fineline tape alongside. Then a pencil was used on the outside of the paper pattern, which now showed the location. Better shown here:


    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=miZW1aOWwXg


    The halves still need to be welded together using O/A.


    Two of the ball glove pounding pads were put into service for metalshaping, one using shot, the other using sand..





    Peter showed lead loading method for aluminum...
