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 class, I go over metal shaping techniques using hand tools available to the average car restoration shop. How to handle the tools in a verity of combinations that is best suited for the job at hand.
