HOGTOWN METAL SHAPING MEET APRIL 28-29, 2012
Permalink  
 


 

Hi Guys.

 

I'll be hosting a metal shaping meet at my workplace.

Since this is an Ontario board, I figured maybe some of the guys here might be interested in learning how to shape metal.

We'll have ewheels, stumps, beater bags, mallets, TIG welding, bead roller, stretcher/shrinkers and a bunch of metal to play with.

I've got at least a dozen confirmed so it should be OK.

Do you have to have previous metal shaping knowledge/experience to attend?
I have none but would love to learn. Even if I don't touch a tool it would be great to just watch and learn. Let me know. Thanks.

No experience necessary.

Don't worry, we'll give you piece of metal to play with.

 Hogtown is an old nickname for Toronto.

I figured Hogtown had a nicer ring to it.

Its gonna be on Markham Rd. just north of Finch Ave.

You can check that on a google map.

Hope to see you there. Do you have any project to bring or perhaps a shape that I can show you how to make? It beats making a bowl.

Alright. Two more victims,.....err participants.

There will be something for you to do for sure. Bench racing is also fine of coarse.

We'll get you doing something even if that's learning how to TIG weld.

Alright pugsy you had me at "learning how to TIG weld" smile That's something I've always wanted to try but never have... I'm going to try my best to make it down.... Seems a bunch of others from the forum are attending as well, so it would be a good place to meet some fellow "Ontario Rodders" biggrin

Sounds good Dave.

Looks like it'll be standing room only soon.

We may need a couple more stumps.

If anyone wants to make a stump of their own, bring it along and we can hog it out with my chainsaw. It should be some kind of hardwood.

When do you need to know for sure?  I would love to come.  Problem is I can only say I'm 90% coming as of now because it is a little far down the road.  I'll see what I can do.  Hopefully my car will be on the road by that time as well.

I'll need everyone to confirm about a week beforehand so I know how many to expect.

Hey Pugsy does this mean you are buying the beer for the bench racers, no worries I am kidding. No time for booze and learning just the learning part. So how are you going to do a final reminder and head count? Probably be a few from our club that will want to attend.smile

 I have 33 down on my list so far other than myself and my budddy Mark.

Of coarse there won't be 100% turnout but it should still be quite busy.

Maple is great. Any diameter really, the bigger the better. I'd say somewhere abouts 8" and up.

What, you've never seen a tree? JK  

Stump is a piece of tree trunk about 2' long. A concave cutout is made in the end and you now have an excellent tool for metal shaping. The price is always right as you can get them for nothing.

Of coarse if a taller piece is available, it would put it a nice height for pounding on.

Beater bags will be useful at the meet too. You can make one from an old purse. When I first started my total investment for a stump, beater bag and a few mallets was 7 bucks. 2 bucks for the purse and 5 bucks for the baseball bat I made a hammer from. I didn't include the hammer handle as I had that in stock already.

Hmmm never really thought of using a trunk. I always ended up using whatever I had close by to make my shapes. I have some people who want me to start making my metal art again and some new tool ideas would be handy.

 I'll have to do a final tally a couple weeks before the event. I'll let you know.

Got any pics of your metal art? I'd like to see some.

As others have mentioned, I too would love to be able to just drop in and spectate if that is an option. Markham/Finch is not far for me. I'd be more than happy just listening and watching.

More importantly though, will there be valet parking for the rods? :)

Sure you could drop by to see what's up.

It will be great to meet the members of the forum.

As for parking, its in an industrial complex and should be OK since its on the weekend.
