I can bring some door prize stuff (tools and tooling I just picked up in bulk at auction)

Also - there's a 36" cast iron antique bandsaw I've been looking at for either a larger EW or a planishing hammer build. I was thinking about waiting until after this event (and being a little better informed). If you want to entertain it - I could try and get it and bring it with me for some group input.

Yes, no?

Default Seminar ideas for the Redneck Roundup

Also, I'm a halfway decent Al TIG welder, but have never actually tried gas welding panels - might be useful to have some training wheels on...

Where does everybody usually stay?
I also would like help getting past the 80% point without over cooking the shape.

Hi Bill,

I can do a presentation on how I use flexible shape patterns.

I would be interested in your approach to "reverse curves."

Bob

For new guys making the trip, welcome! The link below is a list of things to expect while attending events.

https://www.allmetalshaping.com/showthread.php?t=4667

For everyone attending, if you want to see something, let the group know, sooner the better. There is a lot of talent that shows up and people willing to help.

See you in August

Bill

Default Ideas

Being fairly new to the hobby, any help using more manual methods would be appreciated. Things like better shrinking methods, planishing/smoothing, etc.

Iím also hoping to get input about purchasing a better English wheel. Iím currently leaning towards the Imperial but would appreciate any input before investing.

Also, Iím not driving back to Michigan until Monday so Iím happy to help clean/reorganize the shop on Sunday if needed.

Thanks

Robert

Is Registration still open? I'd like to attend if there is room. I've never been to this before, but have been to Oblong.

Thanks

Hi,

Steve Hamilton has offered to organize the seminars this year, (which is like herding cats).. This is a list of what I have so far from the responses to this thread.

Bill Tromblay, my progression through buck design and use.
Bill Tromblay, I can do one on one instruction in TIG welding, if anyone is interested.
Kerry Pickerton, 101 basics to metal shaping.
Robert McCartney, the use of tin snips. How to cut to the line the right way. (Note most people don't know how to use them correctly)
Stan Fulton aka Pullmax wizard, open to demonstrations..
Bob Baisden, How to make flexible shape patterns also known as FSP.
Dan Pate, Eckold machine and why everyone should have one...
Steve "SCOOB" Reproduce/restore Marque badges, are you willing to do a presentation on this?

Guys looking for ideas or help.

Bill Gulla, needing ideas for a model A build.
Steve "SCOOB", Looking for a seminar on getting the last 20% fitment and finishing. Gas welding aluminum. Ideas for using cast iron band saw frames for english wheels and planish hammers.
Robert Schnur, Looking for help with the manual methods of metal shaping, tuck shrinking, planishing and so on..

Anyone interested in doing these seminars^^^?

Great list so far, this really helps Steve Hamilton with setting up the seminars. If I missed something, let us know. Keep the list coming and everyone has something to share. It may seem simple to you, but your knowledge could really help some one else and that is what this event is about + the good food...

Thx

Bill

It was an idea off the top of my head, having done a little more research, I don't think I'll be using the oven for that - BUT it does look like it'll work for heat treating. The oven is small enough that I can bring it with me if you want?

I recently picked up a shoe sewing machine that I'm attempting a reciprocating hammer build with. The band saw is still on marketplace at $250, I may get it eventually, but if somebody else is interested, I'm willing to get it and bring it with me.
