Default New to metalshaping

Hello everyone,
I'm 71 and retired from the Wexner Medical Center at Ohio State where I worked in the imaging side of clinical engineering. For many years I've had a fascination with metalshaping and its many applications. I'm a "gearhead", probably like most of you and love old airplanes, cars and motorcycles. I started gathering and making shaping tools a few years back and I'm currently working on a Dunstall Commando tank for my café bike as a replacement for the fiberglass one that is currently on it. I was turned on to this site while watching a uTube interview with William Tromblay hosted by Sheet Metal Shaping. As you can imagine I have many questions to ask as I move forward with developing this new skill set. I look forward to getting to know you and if their is anyone in the central Ohio area possibly meeting up sometime. Thank you for accepting me into the group. Warren

Welcome Warren. Evan Wilcox over on instagram regularly posts his alloy tank building projects and processes if you didn’t already know.
Cheers
Steve

Hi,

Welcome to the group. I played with a Dunstall several years ago, always neat to see the go fast parts for a Norton.
