Publisher Comments:

Sheet Metal Technology is written in Dave's unique style with the beginner or vocational student in mind as he demonstrates how a product idea is conceived, developed and then produced by a single craftsman with basic tools.

Subjects covered are safety in the shop, use of tools, layout and pattern development, various ways of forming and joining metal along with edging methods, corner systems and panel reinforcement. You will be introduced to the basic sheet metal shop where you will learn about various methods of forming sheet metal and in some instances even constructing your own tools including a rather unique and functional 24" leaf brake constructed of hardwood.

The final chapter opens with a mass production operation set up to demonstrate the efficiency and economy of modern industrial technology. Then further projects are progressively introduced as skill is acquired. Such projects as a dustpan for the shop, a handy tool tote tray as well as plans for single and double hinge tool boxes. By this time you are an advanced student and ready to construct the unique protable charcoal grill and the impressive three drawer tool chest from the plans provided.

Dave Gingery brings it all within your grasp and you will be amazed at what can be produced with tin snips, standard measuring tools and a 24" sheet metal brake.
