Default Sad news... Jerry Gulley has died

According to a facebook post, our friend Jerry Gully passed away peacefully last night.

Jerry sold metalshaping tools from his tool trailer for longer than metalshaping forums existed. I first laid hands on an English Wheel at Jerry's trailer at the Charlotte Auto Fair in 2000. Later that year he was at FormFest 02 at George King's shop in Huntsville, Al. That was the first metal shaping event I attended. He attended almost every automotive or shaping event on the east side of the country.

Jerry was a fixture at MetalMeet and many regional events. Super nice guy. I'll miss him.

Sad to hear. I never got to meet Jerry but his reputation certainly preceded him; one of the good ones...

I met him at the annual HotRod reunions in Bowlin Green, they'd set up & demonstrate, I watched them wheel a '40 Willys front fender over the weekend. He fixed me up with body hammers and a big sandbag that I treasure.
