I am restoring a microcar. I have a few panels that are unavailable as reproductions so my choice was to make them or have someone fabricate them. You can guess what I decided or I wouldn't be here! I have about 30 years of furniture and cabinet making experience, as well as years of engine rebuilding on motorcycles, cars and scooters. I am hoping that some of this experience is transferable to metal working.

I recently completed the Dagger Tools metal shaping class (which was great). I will probably have a question or two along the way and I hope the people here can help.

All tools are a hammer except the chisel.....That's a screwdriver.
