Hello! As an apprentice in metal shaping, i’ve come across a nice trick when using tin snips: as you release tension on the snips after a cut, push the snips forward along the cut line (you should feel some vibration). this completely prevents burs from occurring.

What a tremendously satisfying process.

As a young person who understands the value and importance of craftsmanship it deeply suffers me that we are ignoring and loosing these precious information as we lost many masters over time. I appreciate and thank you for sharing your experiences and techniques with us!

Excelent video Kevin , well explained . Keep up the good work . I noticed that you have used the ''handbuilt'' English wheel at Oblong a while back , what did you think of it ?

Thank you so much, this will help me immensely with making armor

Zak Shah says:

This really is an artistic craft. You really seem to check and recheck your work to make sure it's following the path you want it to, but you also have to have a vision for what you want and know that it's not gonna start off perfect, but gradually arrives there. Absolute masterpiece of a video, this was just what I needed to see!

Hi from the old UK, I have just come across your really excellent video. I would just like to thank you for sharing your expert knowledge and in such detail. I must say that I found it so really enlightening and useful particularly as I'm rebuilding an old 1956 Austin A30 so have now subscribed. I have a wheeling machine (self built but with professional wheels, the frame is properly over engineered but very stiff) but I do have some problems with wheeling, can I ask what width of tracking do you employ and is there a rule of thumb when it comes to setting wheel pressure.

Steve Larsen says:

Very well done video. Very well explained. Thank you very much for sharing.
