I use wooden bowls, like the ones everybody made in high school shop. I decided to buy a lathe and make them myself.

The use you say? I make armour like the knight of old worn, and to hammer the curve and the rounds.

Any one have any suggestion? or Ideas.

I found the metal shapers website very interesting, but the tinmantech.com one didn't come up.

Here is one from my side of the world: a simple air hammer.

There is typo in the URL: change from
ti(M)man to ti(N)man with parenthesis and caps added for emphasis only. URL works with the change, Steve

If the metal is not too thick an English wheel can produce beautiful work. Like those yummy fenders on rods - you could even make a woman out of metal if you wanted. http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//eek.gif

...wish I had an English wheel - Dang! http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif

I use thick copper, somttimes brass, and Iron foil/sheets when I can find the real stuff. I all ready use sheet metal from car bodies.
If you look at the metal shapers website, I have most of those tools and several swage blocks.
