Clearly not his first rodeo.

Worth 12 minutes of your time. Interesting wheel in there.

Thanks, Carey. There is an instrument repair guy in the larger building of one of the local Model A enthusiasts. I may just go give him a visit.

The magnet and the ball technique...amazing!

Whats the chance of that working on 20 gauge steel?

Being steel, it probably wouldn't work at all no matter the thickness. I have played around with super magnets and a soda can. I bashed a dent in the bottom of a can and dropped in a super magnet and worked it with a magnet on the outside. It completely burnished it back to the original shape without a mark. Both were flat magnets. It worked the edges of the dent toward the center and then it was gone, Fun.

Ooh. This is great stuff.

I just sent the link to my friend at the Metal Museum in Memphis TN. They have a fundraiser every fall where a bunch of volunteer metal smiths come in and do repairs for the public. We get tons of pewter and silver plate (which is usually brass and soft solder). I think they should make this a training video.

Beautiful work. Thanks for sharing.
Everything is done so that the plate is still soft, no punches !!!! No bam, bam.:)

I enjoyed watching every minute of this video, can't get over the magnet used as a planishing tool, maybe I apply used some of his methods in shaping thin copper.
Thanks for posting it.
