This weeks class was successful due to the fact that Mike was able to spend a few hours on the shrinker/stretcher, bead roller, the English wheel and a couple of hours gas welding aluminum. We didn’t get his Mustang hood completed, but what Mike did get was experience, practice and head knowledge on the different aspects of metal shaping. When the panel didn’t move the way I had planned, we had to put our heads together and re-think our strategy. Despite the set back, Mike was able to experience the reality of changing course and make it work, all of this with 1:1 instruction and complete hands on training.
The most important aspect of this class, was that we were able to plan ahead regarding the project that Mike decided to bring to be trained on. This way, he got the personal attention in every aspect of metal shaping and his personal project moved forward to a point where he could continue on it at his own home shop.
All in all…..It was a great class!
