  • Wooden Bowl

    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

                jfsmith:
                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.

                ...wish I had an English wheel - Dang!

                  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.
