Default Wray Schelin's ProShaper videos

Some of us oldtimers in the internet metalshaping forums will remember Wray Schelin. Wray was and is a MASTER shaper. Wray was one of my mentors and was the lead technical contributor on the old MetalShapers Association (Terry Cowan's site). He left MSA over a disagreement over intellectual property rights with Terry and founded MetalMeet.

About half of what I know, I attribute to Wray. I'd know more today if I had paid more attention.

Many years ago...about 2004 Wray walked away from the internet to focus on his business.

In recent years, Wray has moved into a huge new shop up in Charlton MA and teaches classes that quite a few of our members have taken, offers long term learning opportunities, sells products, and has posted a TON of really great how to videos. Really great stuff! Here is the current list:
Metal Fabrication: Jaguar E-Type Aluminum Bonnet Build (Part 1)
Metal Fabrication Techniques: Area and Arrangement
Metal Fabrication: How to shrink sheet metal
Metal Fabrication: How to shrink sheet metal
Metal Fabrication Techniques: How to use a Tipping Wheel (Part 1)
How to remove dents in aluminum (Part 2)

How to grind and polish your Autobody Dolly
Metal Shaping Tools: How to make a Slapper (Part 2)
Metal Shaping Tools: How to make a Slapper (Part 1)
Building a hotrod from scratch (Part 2)

Really great stuff!

I follow Wray on Instagram and he certainly does have a big shop that he operates from. Very impressive.

Maybe there’s something to be said for not being all over the internet?
