Default Metal Shaping "bible"?

I recall seeing, online, a large book written by a man in Europe, that is considered the best book on metal shaping. It covered tools and techniques and is current...but I cannot find it anywhere. Does anyone know of this book and where it can be found? I recall he had a dedicated website selling the book. Thanks!

Possibly Bengt Blad. He was recently selling his 2 volume set for half price.

Default Books, DVD’s, etc

If you start looking around there are tons of different materials available. If you have something specific you’d like to research, a posting in this forum will net you a lot of leads.

Default Thanks for the post

I think this web site has what you are looking for. https://www.platsoren.se/.
I am trying to make contact with them to verify the books are available and shipping to the USA is available. Other than that they are written in Swedish.

Those books look good. I would like to see.
I was very helped by a book by Cass and some of his thoughts. They were based on the logic of things. Lots of proven simple practices proven in practice. No need for demanding equipment. Cass helped me a lot with my thinking. Hello Cass.
Mj. I recommended Cass book to a few friends who knocking their heads in the plate and they were very happy.

If you click on the link to Peter Tommasini's website provided by Chris Hamilton in his post in this thread you will find the DVD prices listed.
They are listed as DVD's 1-10 for $410.00 AU shipped to the U.S.
At the current exchange rate that is $301.63 US dollars. That includes shipping.

More then reasonable.


Or you can E-mail him and get the price.

$300 is a pittance for the knowledge and info that those videos impart.

Even if that was the price....which it isn't. How much is knowledge worth?
