Default Sad News

I just went to Tim Barton's web site http://www.autofuturist.org/

The message on the first page reads:

Tim Barton passed away on Dec 9, 2013. The family is in the process of taking care of business, and would appreciate your patience. The family will get back to you as soon as possible.

The Allmetalshaping.com Operations Team is very sorry to hear of Tim's passing and send our condolences to his family. He will be in our prayers.

Hopefully the family itself (or a 3rd party publisher) will still publish the remainder of the volumes as they are a great resource of information relating to the industry and there is a demand for them! Via e-mails with Tim, I was aware he was dealing with health issues at times during the publishing of all the books themselves and thus many of the delays for the final items.

My condolences to his family and close friends. RIP Tim Barton.

That's sad news indeed. In spite of his health issues he made a lasting contribution to metalshapers. I hope his efforts on the book series did not cause whatever health issues he had. I spoke with him a couple times on the phone and, even though we never met, he ran off a complete copy of an ERCO parts and service manual that was no longer available and sent it to me...refusing any payment (even the shipping). Very sorry to hear this.

I am sorry to hear this, Tim contacted me a couple of years ago if i would be willing to provide data to use in his books.I still thank him for that.

Strength to his family to get trough this.

Default Very sad day for the Metalshaping world

On December 7th 2013 I sent an e-mail to Tim inquiring about the shipping on books 5 and 6. In other e-mails I have sent each was answered in a timely manor, with kind words and little tibets letting me now what to expect, and why the delays were taking place. This e-mail was never answered, I know understand and know why! We all have lost a man with a Vision, and the want to put in writing with as many photos the world of metal shaping from the hammer and tree stump to the modern CNC and use of electronics to build sheet metal parts, In the earlier years his involvement informing the Hot Rodding world thru "Street Rodder Magazine" He opened my eyes teaching me and others the hows and how too's of a well guarded trade, I humbly thank you Tim, You will be greatly missed, Your knowledge,your ability to transfer this found knowledge, and put it on paper to be Shared with others. My Prayers go out to your family, in this darkest of time. Tim will be missed, Thank You Tim for all that you have shared with us.
