Today Kyle had a chance to work on the English wheel to smooth out the steel panel. He is learning how metal moves, how to manipulate it and shape it as you desire. Our shop has an Excel English wheel and a Baileigh English wheel that we use to take on the road for training and demonstration purposes.
He tipped the edge to make a flange on the Mittler Bros- Jamey Jordon bead roller and will hammer it to finish it off.
Scott, the owner of the shop Kyle comes from, has invested in his employee in allowing us to help Kyle build his skills. It is a pleasure to be able to pass on the skills to a younger generation and to help leave a legacy of metal shaping.
