Received #1 and #2 today. Professional looking. Well wrapped and packaged for shipment. These will take more than a few minutes to fully read!

Just a quick glance through but just the few pictures of creating a special set of rollers for use on an English Wheel to shape curved louvers through a curved panel was worthwhile in itself. I have to do upcoming on a project and couldn't figure out how to do manually or via Pullmax. Have my solution now!

I'm ordering #3 and #4. Hopefully they are as packed with as much content and ideas as these first two.

Default Tim Barton's books

Santa was good to me (WIFEY). I got first two volumes of Tim's books. They are just awesome!! He was a pleasure to talk to when ordering the books. He was also very pleasant in responding with e-mails. He seems to handle his business "PERSONALLY" with a pleasant attitude. Can't wait to get the rest of the series! Enjoy everyone and don't miss out on this awesome set !!!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Mike Yurko and WIFEY!

Received my first two books and started reading them. These books are going to be very informative and enjoyable to read. Tim thanks for taking the time to put all of the information together. From what I have seen so far they will fill in a lot of the history on metal shaping.

I sent Tim Barton and email asking about the delivery dates for Volumes 3 and 4 that were originally scheduled for shipping in January. Tim responded that he had to move the delivery date to the end of February for these volumes due to some personal problems. The following is part of the email he sent.

"Because the loss of a week interfered with the delivery date for #3 and #4, I made a decision to include some new material that had at first come in too late to use. Because of the time lost in the hospital and the new pages, I have revised the delivery date to the end of February for books #3 and #4. The readers will LOVE what is being included."

Tim is also updating his web site to reflect the delivery date changes but that won't be completed for about a week.

Just trying to let people that order the books know why the delay in delivery.
