And then we put the pieces back together for Max...
So we put the pressure back on Max to break out the wooden mallets, leather bag, planishing hammer and english wheel and get building.

Word on the street is Max has replaced the plastic sawhorses with a build stand, guess I will have to go by and check progress one of these days

The BUCK  will be used to form a ALUMINUM BODY, cheers.
Max, what would it take to teach me basics of working aluminum? I am in your back yard so driving distance is not a problem.

John, you guys could learn together.... this is part of Max's continuing adult education.... he wants to learn to beat up aluminum... so he is going to build an aluminum fairing.
Learning to do things that he has not done before is right in Max's wheelhouse... (he is retired Navy... when you are on a ship and need something, you figure out how to make it)

I need to call Max and set something up. At the least, he may need another pair of hands on that English Wheel.

Took a two day tin knocking class a few years ago and it was a lot of fun! http://www.ddclassic.com/
The Yoder came off a WWII aircraft carrrier. It will shake your teeth out if you fight it!  shocked grin

Learned about shrinking & stretching but mainly about persuading metal to do what you want!  cheers

Me thinks there is a big metal shaping fair in Illinois every year where you can get some hands on but the name of it escapes me! Anyone know about it?

Don't know this guy but like his web page name: http://www.saltflatsspeedshop.com/metalshaping-classes

The one in Oblong Il is metalmeet.com
There is another site Allmetalshaping.com
Either site has a lot of info and help if you ask. The info to do about anything you  want to do to any metal is there.
I have been to the Oblong meet but it's been several years ago.

For those that think Max is slacking, I have to admit, I took pictures a week ago and did not get them on here.  Here are a few more pictures of the buck development.  
And as promised he built a stand to work on because the sawhorses were a little wobbly

Here are a couple more from last week... I have some I took today and I will put them up as soon as I have time to resize them.  Max is a regular slave driver....  grin
He is finished I think... it is still Friday so I'll say he passed the buck.  Today's pics to follow
Merry Christmas everyone  cheers

Max,
What is the material that you are using for your buck? Looks like some sort of laminated board. I have to build a buck for the back of me lakester in the near future and I really like the looks of yours, and I am not ashamed to steal a great idea.

Wow!!! Stainless's pay is about equal to the pay most of us have had working in and about this sport, love, lust, disease or whatever it's diagnosed as cheers cheers
Merry Christmas everyone and a Happy New Year.
