"Of all the skills required for old car projects, manipulating metal is the one most closely regarded as a black art, one not easily conveyed in print. It’s refreshing then to find that Professional Sheet Metal Fabrication author Ed Barr appears to possess that rare combination of highly defined skills along with the acumen to present them in a manner that absolute beginners can understand and use. At just past 300 pages, a lot of ground is covered, and this in-depth manual could well become your go-to resource." - Hemmings Motor News


Ferrari started making their first racing cars by hammering sheet metal for the chassis cold on tree trunks in an open field, and hand-forming the body, so any sheet metal fabricator is following a successful example! Tim Barton offers instructions that take the reader beyond the basics of sheet metal fabrication to a real mastery of this art. He includes clear directions for using power and pneumatic hammers, the English wheel, Eckold machines, Pullmax machines and many more. Among the specific skills included are hand forming techniques, buck building, punching louvers, edge finishing, and more - forming door seams, making fenders, hoods, and other body parts. All projects are shown from start to finish, and there is advice on how to put finishes on metal, like engine turning, metal chasing, laser processing. For anyone who is starting or experienced in sheet metal fabrication, this is a must-have, invaluable reference book. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe .

Great reference! 23. Mai 2013

My first impression of this book was, "Wow! This is a lot thicker than I expected."

I had not heard of Ed Barr prior to ordering the book, but I had heard of McPherson College, where he is an instructor. McPherson is a real-deal, four year accredited institution that offers several degrees in automotive restoration. This book contains the quality and depth of information that you would expect from someone that teaches in such a program.

Professional Sheet Metal Fabrication contains a good balance of information on fabricating from scratch and restoration. Both hand shaping techniques and shaping with power tools are covered. There is a pretty thorough section on using a Dake power hammer, for example. The thing that I like about all of the "how to" sections is that they're clearly written by someone who is an expert sheet metal worker instead of a writer describing what they've seen someone else do. This really separates this book from several others that I own. In a lot of cases, he describes what can go wrong and how to fix it, which can be really helpful.

The book is well illustrated with color photos, many of which show the work of the author's students. The author is also really good about citing the originator of particular techniques or tools, which is pretty refreshing.

I recommend this book highly to anyone looking for a good reference on tools and techniques used in sheet metal shaping.

Regardless of what you're forming this is the bible of sheet metal how-to. The techniques in this book can be applied to any vehicle or anything else that you want to form out of sheet metal. The instructions and photos complement each other perfectly. Ed Barr knows his stuff and after reading his book so will you.

Excellent value and very comprehensive. Would have liked a few more practical projects to demonstrate the practical application of the techniques described, but otherwise pretty hard to fault.

Great review book of Metal Fabrication techniques 13. September 2013
Von J. Elliott - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I spent five days in a Kent White metal working course. Since that time, I have not had the time to work on my restoration projects. I was looking for a good text to review Kent's class and maybe pick up a few tips. This book exceeded my expectations. Ed Barr is well know as a metal worker and teacher. This book is well written and illustrated with good in focus pictures. Shows a good shop layout and covers the basics and advanced metal shaping techniques. I high recommend it.
