Default Rumley tractor

Just a couple pics of the radiator Iím building for a 1918 Rumley Do All tractor.got to use my Trumpf I just picked up to offset the tank edges.Not the most perfect edge but not bad for my first go at it,besides the customer wants the rad to look a 100 years old so I get to build my first relic.

I have a set of Shrinker and stretcher machines.They are the hand ones that I just put an air cylinder kit from Mittler brothers on.

Looks good so far. Maybe go for a faster stroke speed to lose that crinkly edge and spray some thin oil on to let the part pass through easier. Please donít take that as criticism but something that might help next time.
