We will demonstrate various types of beading dies, and show how to use them for straight and curved details. Several applications will be shown for the use of Rounding-Over dies. Tipping dies will be used for flanging, and step dies will be used for creating offsets, or 'joggles'. Various uses of a urethane (skateboard) wheel will be shown.
We will demonstrate the benefits of pre-stretching the metal before beading, and show what problems may arise if the metal is not pre-stretched. Layout for complicated patterns will be demonstrated, plus a variety of unusual uses for the beading machine.
We will make a nose for a roadster in this workshop, starting from flat sheets of metal, and working over a wooden station buck. This project involves some intricate metalshaping, involving both low and high-crown sections, and these principles of construction could be used to make any automotive panel.
You will learn how a properly-designed buck eases the construction of a complicated project like this, and how to make patterns from the buck that will ease the fabrication process. Shaping will be done with hand tools, an English wheel, and a beading machine.
