Ken Crain is the owner of Studio 217 in Dallas Texas. He is an up and coming metal shaper and has a true love for metal art. He was recently bitten by the metal shaping bug and has been fascinated with the Baileigh MH-19 Multi Hammer. After a couple of phone conversations with the Baileigh crew, Ken decided to jump on a plane and fly into Milwaukee Airport in the middle of a blizzard, all for the love of metal shaping!
Here are a couple videos of him getting to know the machine:

Here he is with his new Baileigh MH-19 Power Hammer!

I've always wanted to know what the machines were originally designed to do, FIRST OWNER history. I would think aircraft part manufacturing would be on the list, correct?

Ok, my background is machinist, not sheet metal worker. I'm sure I am going to recieve heaps of scorn for asking such a greenhorn question, but scorn is good, as long as I learn something.

For years, I have been reading the word pullmax, just what does a pullmax do to a piece of sheetmetal, and how does it do it? Maybe I need one, and just dont know it yet.

I've never seen a Pullmax in action, but you can made curved louvers for one thing. Look at a Duesenberg Model J no two are the same length, that is one example that comes to mind.

Always wondered how they did that.

Awww CRAP! I kinda figured that if I found out what one of these was, I'd need one! Funny how that works.

I am in the middle of building mine at the moment. It is rather heavy! I am getting the drive side of things sorted out at the moment. As soon as I get something more to show I will post up some pictures.

Thanks for that link! Black on a purple background isn't quite as bad as red on blue. Bob
