Shop Tour~Dressing Plates, T Mandrels and Chasers.

Here is a look at more hand tools that aid in metal shaping techniques in my second shop tour video.
Over the years I have collected or made up my own dressing plates, T mandrels, and chasers.
All of these types of hand tools are practical, coming in handy for many types of large or small jobs.
During my one-on-one private metal shaping workshops, I go over metal shaping techniques using hand tools available to the average car restoration shop. How to handle the tools in a variety of combinations that is best suited for the job at hand.
