Learn the principles and practices of cutting and forming simple and compound curves and shapes from aluminum and light-gauge sheet-metal material without molten metal, flames and expensive molds, etc.

Use our tools to fold, shape and cut sheet metal like paper! Learn to operate a sheet roller, sheet metal shear, punch, corner notcher and the box and pan brake. Use an English wheel, shrinker/stretcher, pneumatic planishing hammer, delrin shaping hammers and beater bags provided to create artistic, useful curved aluminum or light-gauge steel objects. Also learn to use the horizontal and vertical metal band saws.

Through tool demonstration and use, you will shape, form, harden and fabricate a fruit or nut bowl or a bike fender in class. Other tools and techniques as well as your project and future classes will be discussed.
