Tipping and Hammering an Aluminum Wired Edge

Last spring I was asked to make an aluminum wave guard for a race boat.
Here is my demonstration using the bead roll to tip the edge. Hand tools of hammers and dollies on .063 / 3003 aluminum with a 9 gauge galvanized wire hammered over to give the wave guard strength and a clean finish.

This is one of the many techniques I teach here at my One on One Private Metal Shaping workshops.
