Sheet Metal Fabrication Basics is designed to provide how-to help for fabricators working at home and in small shops. Whether the goal is a hand-made air dam or a one-off air cleaner cover, the project can be done without expensive power tools. This book was created with the help of fabricators like Rob Roehl, tin-man for bike-builder Donnie Smith, as well as Bruce Terry and Ron Covell. Projects include the creation of simple shapes made with hammer and dolly, hand-operated shrinker-stretcher, English wheel, and various mallets. Some objects are made from more than one piece, thus the book also includes a section on welding both aluminum and steel, with gas and TIG.You can learn to fabricate sheet metal. All you need is the raw material, the sincere desire to learn and a copy of this new Sheet Metal Fabrication Basics book from Wolfgang Publications. 144 pages long, and over 400 B&W images.
