Nice metal fabrication. Do you have your own English Wheel?

Hi Chris

I have only a few metal fab tools
-Shrink/Stretcher Dies
-Small and Cheaper Beadroller from Eastwood
-Cheap and nasty chinese pan brake

No English wheel yet. I might invest in one or make it from scratch if I find the need for one. I am by no means a master in this craft yet, but just shows a lot can be achieved if you are patient and willing to give it a go.

I do have another project (a Citroen HY van) with lots of rust that will require more than the tools I listed above, but I need to finish this Continental first before starting the other. For that one I will need to replace extensive sections of metal, I am thinking even to roll some of the corrugated panels from scratch...

Cheers

Julio
