To all who helped get me started w/ my TIG -a big THANK YOU. I feel much better about it now :-D, and can see a lot of scrap practice pieces coming soon. Maybe I'll even use it to build my truck bed dolly. Also a big THANK YOU to Dan, and his wife for being such great hosts. Without people like all of you I probably would have given up on my real cars, and gone for the "cookie cutter car" :o, but I need challenges. Hope the pics show up.

I would like to post some more pics but nothing is happening in the gallery tonight. ( I am assuming they are fixing some of the picture problems others are experiencing)

Jeff,

LOL I've jerked my head around hearing Dan say Dicey..... I missed you guys too. I missed you at the last meet Gene and it bummed me out... I spent the weekend redoing '36 fenders..... I built them, had to redo them to fit. Then to find out the body I fit them to was on a twisted frame I had to redo the redone fender...... Looks like Dan had a great meet!!! Hope to see more pictures.

Looks like a great time!

What brand of bead roller is this? It looks like some Niagaras but I don't recognize the squared-off end.

Answering my own question, it is a Maplewood. They've made some really stout machines.

I don't want to hijack this thread, so here is a link to a thread about these rotary machines:

That's fine Peter, Hi-jacking was the theme of the spring MM. "Hey Dan, how do you do this?", "Hey Dan, how does this machine work?", "Hey Dan, why is there smoke coming out from this tool?", Hey Dan, where are my fingers?".

I think Dan got about 5 minutes worth of work done in 3 days :o . But he was the host with the most!

If you want to see more of the roller, I took this video last fall:

somewhere in that shop tour is some coverage of the roller. (at 1:45)

I made it down on Friday, and had a great time! Unbelievable experience. Managed to spend about 15 hours just building the frame for my T roadster deck lid! Frustrating at times; but it came out really nice, and I learned tons more than I'd have hoped for in just a day. The generosity of our host, as well as everybody else there, is immeasurable. Big thanks to all who helped me out. Wish I'd been able to make the other days. Matt's A hood re-fab looks very cool! Wish I could have witnessed that!
