nellieb is on a distinguished road

Hi forming the panels was by hitting the panels on a sand bag and then using a wooden stump to flatten. A lot of the tools are home made out of steel bon my forge. I use a wooden ball from a bowling green to help create curves I worked every day over the winter bashing away I am certain the neighbours hate me! You learn as you go and slowly you get into the flow of understanding the material you have to enjoy it and expect mistakes. I use gas oxygen and acetylene and this was at first a pain until you understand the gentleness of the flame. I cannot wait to start another build as the body is so light and good to look at! Hope that this helps!
