This week we are delivering a private metal shaping /welding training class here at KMW for Brian from Hard Life Kustoms n Restoration in Las Vegas. This one on one complete hands on training class will allow Brian to make a fender for a tear drop trailer from steel using machinery and hand tools available to the ordinary shop.
This morning Brian learned the basics of buck making and moved on to making the bottom portion of the fender using the leather shot bag, planishing hammer and english wheel to fit the panel to the wooden buck.
Our classes specialize in teaching one student at a time with a project we design to train to the needs of the student. We also encourage the student to bring in a project from their own shop to train on that project, build their skills to move that project forward. We also offer guidance to the student to be able to complete their project when they get back to their shop.
