We will make a 1932 Ford grille shell in this workshop, starting with flat sheets of metal, and working over a wooden station buck with steel reinforcements. This project involves some very intricate metalshaping, involving both low-crown and high-crown sections, plus the recessed center section that the grille fits into.
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.

I learned some very valuable techniquess of many complex metal shaping and forming contouring in this great class. Very informitive methods and ideas that can be used in almost any shape one will encounter in a metal forming, shaping subject that can be used in a typical home shop and inexpensively. I will be able to duplicate these methods to apply to and form and shape anything that I decide to tackle at home in my own shop.
I would recomend this class to anyone that wants to make anything in your dreams. Again;
Thank you Ron for your great patients and teaching abilities on this subject.
