Default Hello from South England

Hi I'm Chris from Southampton England.

I've stumbled across this forum searching the net for metal shaping and fabrication techniques.
I'm quite new to fabrication, having spend some time fixing up my old rusty Nissan has given me new skills and has given me a real want to learn and continue my progress with working with metal. I have basic skills from working for many years as a sheet metal roofer, however the majority of materials came pre-formed, but more than capable with a pair of snips

I love to make things myself so being able to fab up parts from sheet is my ideal.

I'm looking forward to getting stuck in and like the rules.
I've always been of the mindframe whereby its better to help people and share knowledge.

Cheers

Hi Chris, welcome to the site, have a good old look round, plenty of guys just waiting for you to ask questions, get your head around posting photos sooner or later you will need it. I'm just down the road in North Devon.

Have fun.
