Default Hi, new guy to this forum

Hi,
Just found this forum and I'm interested in learning more on metal shaping. By trade, I'm an Aviation Mechanic, and have been using various shaping machines for some time, English Wheel, Yoder Hammer, Planishing hammers, Pexto machines, brakes and shears . . .


I live in MD and am setting up my home shop now. Just small projects, but still like to play around with metal shaping.


Thanks for letting me join!

I used to, had one from 1996 until my partner wrecked it in 2003. He didn't get hurt, but the insurance company got the airplane. It's out west somewhere now and almost back in the air at last report.

Wish I had the $ for another(and the $ for the gas!).
