It is a fantastic book. Dan Pate brought a case of autographed books to the Redneck Roundup and only had 2-3 when he left. It was unanimously thought to be a great book from which to learn new tips and tricks from a well established world class metal shaper. Don't hesitate on acquiring this second new and improved addition.

Yes! I just got mine. I have the 1st one too. The photo quality is much better, most pics are color. I haven't had a chance to read through but it has more stuff and a lot of the grammar has been fixed. Cass was writing in his second language and it was not edited in the first one. Not that the first one isn't amazing, but this one is that much better. Well worth the $$ in my opinion. He is an amazingly talented and innovative guy. I'd love to see him work.

Default Happy buyer

I have no connection Mr. Nawrocki, so I offer this only as I sat on the fence too long deciding on his first edition: the price was higher than I like to spend on an unseen book, one I can't flip through the pages first. However, after reading the reviews here and elsewhere, I regretted that indecision, by the time I went to order it, it was sold out.

I ordered a copy of his second edition last week when I first read it was out, it came 2 days ago, I am very pleased. It will take quite a while to digest everything, as there is a lot of info contained within it. Pricey, but worth it in my opinion.

I have a lot of questions already regarding his hand held bead rollers powered by air ratchets. I would like to build one and wonder if any one knows his gear source. To me the larger gears look like small engine (as in lawn mower) cam gears but what is the smaller gear that drives it from?

The gear question is probably something I should post elsewhere on a new thread.

Mark,
Cass told me that most of his tool parts come from salvage stores. Gears like that ought to be easy to find, in fact, a hot rod shop might have some lying around from old timing gears (chain substitutes.)

In a word, HELL YEAH! Ok, two words.

I just found the time to sit down and do a preliminary read and I was extremely impressed. I've been privileged to go to Cass' shop on several occasions and was even able to help with some of his projects. However, even with some firsthand knowledge of his tools and techniques, the first edition left me with some questions in some areas and wanting more. Edition 2 addresses that. The photos are all in color and more detailed. The explanations are much more complete. Plus there are a ton of new pages that explain some amazing stuff in a more understandable way.

I said that Edition 1 was not a book for novice shapers and I'll say that is still the case. However, if someone wants to see that there truly is nothing impossible in sheet metal, this book is an inspiration that will keep you going when you hit that brick wall (and you will) and believe something can't be done.

There are only a handful of world class shapers and Cass Nawrocki is absolutely one of, if not the, very best. I'm honored to know him.

Cass asked me to post this for him:
