Reviews - What do customers think about Advanced Sheet Metal Fabrication?
Not advanced at all. Feb 8, 2008
Well, it's worth begin talking about the title. This is a good book, with the appeal of a serial issue of technician knowledge or whatever else. I think I bought this book by reading the title, and this is not an advanced lesson about metal fabrication or how to accurate trim sheets in order to create a shape. This is more a book written by enthusiasts for enthusiast, but only some colorfull photos and no text or formula is the reason for that price. If you really want to see Overhaulin' or Rides, this book is more of the same. Good photos but no explanation. Only if you're in need to see people working on a car, just as seen on tv.
Advanced sheetmetal fabrication Feb 24, 2007
Very good book which has taught me some interesting aspects of sheetmetal fabrication. Worth buying.
Probably the best book on metal shaping, a must. Aug 22, 2006
I have read other books by Tim Remus and others but, in my opinion' this is the very best.
This book includes complete text and photographic coverage of several actual projects performed by the best masters of the trade.
I also appreciate the coverage of all available power machinery available to the trade (the Yoder and Pettingell hammers, the Pullmax, the English wheel and the Eckold, to name a few).
Other interesting sequences offer the construction of a "Station Buck" (A 3D template that is used to check your work as you go along) and cover also paper patterning.
I strongly recommend this book to anybody interested in the "black art" of metal shaping; it is really an eye opener.
A little bit of knowledge about how metal shrinks and stretches may be of help in reading this book, but is definitely not a requirement.
If only they published such great books in Italian!
