Re: [metalshapers] Re: newbie...
- Jacin in Ohio,Thank you for your reply, since I am new to this sort of thing, I'll most likely try to learnthe basics of what can be done with hand tools. The fancy expensive machines can waitfor now. Since I have a endless supply of different types of steel at my place of employment,(scrap pieces of heavy tubing drops, etc.) I may in the future build my own machines.The company I work for has pretty nice machine shop too, and a few favors can sure help.Jim
- I actually got to meet John Toom at a Scott Knight
seminar many years ago. I did not know he was gone. He
was a really cool guy. I think he was working for west
coast nissan at the time we met. The car pictured here
is the car he was talking about building at that time.
It is beautiful. I am sorry he is gone.

Do you Yahoo!?
SBC Yahoo! DSL - Now only $29.95 per month!
- I never had the opportunity to meet him -- but everyone I talk to has
nothing but great things to say about him. The guy who own's the car says
he was the greatest craftsman he had ever met. His shop is still in use and
I'm working on getting photos of all the tools and equipment for the albums.
Check out his e-wheel.
Notice the lower adjuster made of diamond plate almost touching the
floor. Not many people will trip over that

I will be at the "Designing for Speed" function at Art Center on the
20th. It is one of the "field trips" that Peter Tomashevski and I
are taking the 2 interns that are working with us from McPherson
College this summer on. I'll have Peter report on the event and post
some pictures next week.
In So Cal Behind the Orange Curtain
- That sounds like a good plan.
