Product Description

Review

Advanced Sheet Metal Fabrication is a bit more advanced (as the title suggests) and is in full colour. The first part deals with making the rear end of a Half-Midget Indy roadster. This is quite a complex shape and manufacture is covered in detail. The second part deals with the construction of a complete new skin for a 1955 Lotus Racing Car. the finished body (photographed unpainted) looks really good. It must have taken a lot of time and paitence. The third part deals with the fabrication of a motorbike Gas (petrol) tank from templates throguh to a completely finished tank. I am sure this bit of the book would be of interest to the classic bike restorers amongst us. Next is the section about making replacment panels for vintage tin. A fender for a 1922 Rolls Royce is taken as the example. Templates are taken from the old rusty tin and then photos and text follow the recreation form the old parts to a fully finished fender. The book concludes with a section on making a panle for a hand built Alfa Romeo. if you are into rebuilding old cars or motorbies there is sure to be something of interest in this book. --Model Engineer's workshop

What a splendid book. Takes metalworking right through various advanced stages, well described and illustrated. Recommend it to any sheet metalworker who wants to either move on or at least read how to do it. Splendid.

Probably the best book on metal shaping, a must. 22 Aug 2006
By Marco from Rome, Italy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have read other books by Tim Remus and others but, in my opinion' this is the very best.

This book includes complete text and photographic coverage of several actual projects performed by the best masters of the trade.

I also appreciate the coverage of all available power machinery available to the trade (the Yoder and Pettingell hammers, the Pullmax, the English wheel and the Eckold, to name a few).

Other interesting sequences offer the construction of a "Station Buck" (A 3D template that is used to check your work as you go along) and cover also paper patterning.

I strongly recommend this book to anybody interested in the "black art" of metal shaping; it is really an eye opener.

A little bit of knowledge about how metal shrinks and stretches may be of help in reading this book, but is definitely not a requirement.

If only they published such great books in Italian!

Marco,

Advanced Sheet Metal Fabrication 19 Mar 2011
By BTD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book consists of lots of pictures of very experienced technicians using very expensive tools to create impressive pieces/projects. Given that, I suppose the title is accurate. What I was looking for was a more in-depth discussion of metal properties and forming techniques more suited to the home/garage shop. I will say that the book does have some helpful hints useful to the home enthusiast but it leans more toward the multi-thousand dollar power hammers, wheels and shrinker/stretchers.

Great Book 5 Nov 2010
By Tradeview - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book. Those who whine about it simply don't understand you can't get everything out of a book. Take what you learn in this book and APPLY IT to many projects with your own twist on how to get things done. All any book can do is get you pointed in the right direction... the rest must come from the craftman.

Not advanced at all. 8 Feb 2008
By Jose Vera Campello - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Well, it's worth begin talking about the title. This is a good book, with the appeal of a serial issue of technician knowledge or whatever else. I think I bought this book by reading the title, and this is not an advanced lesson about metal fabrication or how to accurate trim sheets in order to create a shape. This is more a book written by enthusiasts for enthusiast, but only some colorfull photos and no text or formula is the reason for that price.
If you really want to see Overhaulin' or Rides, this book is more of the same. Good photos but no explanation. Only if you're in need to see people working on a car, just as seen on tv.
