Sheet Metal Handbook: How to Form and shape sheet Metal for Competition, Custom and Restoration Use

I was very pleased with this book. It arrived very quickly -- in time for Christmas. I had been looking for this book to help with my old car restoration, and it has been much help. The price was very reasonable, and I'm very happy with my puchase.

I use this quite a bit

I read this when I first got it and I keep it in the Man Room to refresh my fading memory as needed. It is starting to show wear and age now but was new when I got it. LOL

2nd best metal fab book...

This is the 2nd best metal fab book that I have read. It explains the metals, tools, and gives you "homework" projects to do at home. It actually has given me a lot more confidence in trying new techniques. And, i have been doing fab work for over 3yrs.

Order This Book!

I found this book the very best covering creating complex metal forms out of flat metal sheet. Anyone interestaed in forming unique parts or limited series sheet metal products will find a wealth of information. Anybody interested in Aircraft construction and repair, automotive prototypes, racing cars and compond-curve fabrication will find this book of extreme interest.Did you ever wonder how those beautiful streamlined surfaces on boats, yachts, aircraft and racing cars are made today? There are two possible answers: fiberglass or sheet metal. I can guarantee that skilled craftsmen can produce those beautiful forms, faster, stronger and cheaper with metal than with fiberglass!

Best book for beginner

I only have a few metal working tools in my garage but I enjoy the craft and I have spent quite a bit of time learning the tricks. This is the best book I have found on sheet metal. I picked up a lot of tricks and techniques that I have not found in any other book. Get this book before you tackle that next project, you will be glad you did!
