    Well this is the third day by 4:30pm and the roof fabrication is complete(less welding). Things are going very well and we are happy with the look. hopefully tomorrow we can complete the welding and cleanup. we each have a welding machine so it should go pretty fast.

    These are some of the tools FEDER made to help along the chop, the home made english wheel was the most useful, the wood hammers are also a great tool he made. we made the bench as kind of a mobile sheetmetal working station that has all our tools in it. it has a 48" brake and a bead roller that swings out and telescopes. the english wheel also swings in and out for easy stowage.

    Looks like excellent workmanship. Proportions look just right, not too much removed, will still have some head room. Very nice.

    Can we stick all these together and do a Tech-O-Matic?

    This is one of the BEST examples of a THINK first, CUT second chop I have ever seen...

    Plus, they nailed the profile.

    I hope all of You get a chance to share in a project like this with Your own Son. You certainly wont forget it.

    For all of you guys that want an english wheel and can't afford a prebuilt one, get on the internet and look under fabrication equipment. brouse around and you'll find everything you need to build one yourself. All of the critical components that require lathes and mills can be purchased ready to use.
