Product description

"Sheet Metal Bible" is a compendium of sheet metal fabrication projects, everything from simple shaping operations to multi-piece creations like fenders and motorcycle gas tanks. Each of these operations is photographed in detail, including the building of a buck when necessary. Meaty captions help the reader to understand what's really happening as a flat sheet of steel slowly morphs into the convex side of a gas tank. While some of the craftsmen seen in this book work with only hand tools, others prefer the English Wheel. The book is filled with work by legendary fabricators like Ron Covell, Rob Roehl, and Bruce Terry. Side bars scattered throughout the book include interviews that help explain how each of these master metal men learned his craft, which tools they prefer, and where to put the seams on a multi-piece fabrication project. Deciding how best to fabricate a particular part means deciding whether to shrink, stretch, or simply bend the metal into the requited shape. Not to worry, each shaping method is covered in detail in this new book from Timothy Remus and Wolfgang Publications. Projects include components for both two and four-wheeled hot rods, crafted from both aluminum and steel. Each metal has its place in the metal shop, and this new book includes tips on how to work with, and weld, both metals. Whether your project rolls on two wheels or four, needs parts make from aluminum or steel, is simple or complex, there is something in this 176 page book to help you turn that dream into reality.
