"Ed Barr's Professional Sheet Metal Fabrication is a comprehensive guide to workshop shaping and manipulation of sheet metal for both automotive projects and other metalworking endeavors. Barr is a certified professional who teaches metalwork at McPherson College, the only licensed sheet metal fabrication program in the United States"--,Provided by publisher.
"Professional Sheet Metal Fabrication is the number-one resource for sheet metal workers old and new. Join veteran metalworker Ed Barr as he walks you through the ins and outs of planning a sheet metal project, acquiring the necessary tools and resources, doing the work, and adding the perfect finishing touches for a seamless final product. From his workshop at McPherson College--home of the only genuine sheet metal fabrication education program in the country--Barr not only demonstrates how the latest tools and products work, but also explains why sheet metal reacts the way it does to a wide variety of processes. He includes clear directions for using power and pneumatic hammers and the English wheel, as well as describing specific skills like hand-forming techniques, buck building, louver punching, edge finishing, and more. Readers will learn how to form door seams and to make fenders, hoods, and other body parts; they'll also learn how to put various finishes on metal through engine turning, metal chasing, and laser processing. This is truly the most detailed enthusiast-focused sheet metal how-to book on the market: whether you're a metal hobbyist or experienced professional, you're sure to find something new in Professional Sheet Metal Fabrication"--,Provided by publisher.
