    Metal Forming...


    Anyone follow these dudes on Instagram??
    https://www.baileigh.com/metalworkin...8aAsn1EALw_wcB

    There is not a skill i want to learn more. If i could get a free stab at anything, I would learn to form metal. I would cut shape and weld and be a happy happy man. This is the only skill i would want over being a machinist.
    Don't spend money and buy, spend time and learn.

          Pretty busy maintaining the property here. Adding a slew of other places is not in the cards..

          Ever maintained 140 acre horse farm that has to have the aesthetic of a country club? Not easy yo.

              The thought had crossed my mind.... I have an Amex business card with no limit that does not get audited.. I'm on the honor system. But i would not feel good about it after... That's my deciding factor when buying shit for the farm.

              We have so much shit here that was bought by previous managers that the far DOES NOT NEED but the manager wanted to play with... Like lots...

              But... If somthing gets dented up and will cost more than $150 to replace and i feel i could reform it with that hammer.. Well, it make sence then haha

                  does anything on the farm have a steel fuel tank the is rusted out and needs to be replaced with an aluminum one

                  I'm guessing, metal forming is a little like fishing, you can have all the tools, but without skills only rarely do the good fish bite.

                    That is anything. Well, anything worth doing. But without the tools you cant get the practice in and cant build the skills.

                      Exactly right, hadn't used an English wheel in a while,so had to put in some practice before starting on tank.
