Default Metalshaping seminar in Melbourne Australia

Hi there I just wanted to post some pictures of a metal shaping seminar that we had in Melbourne Australia today, It was kind of informal, a few of us got together and arranged for Tom Peach to come and give us all an understanding on the art of metal shaping,
He spent some time explaining the different shapes and the proceeded to do some demonstrations,

Then it was time for everyone to have ago



Then after a barbeque lunch

It was back to bashing steel and aluminium again with everyone having a great time developing skills




See happy smiling people





Some were very happy with their new found skills






Tom brought along some of the stuff he has made in the past for us to look at, the first is a Holden Monaro quarter panel that he made. It is made from one piece of aluminium with no joins or welds anywhere; it is truly amazing what Tom can produce




Tom’s son Steven also brought along some of his German piccolo style helmets that he makes by hand, now these are a true work of art, absolutely amazing detail, I don’t think the photos do them justice






Some might say that this is the best I have looked in a long time

I would really like to thank Tom for his time and patience with us all, Brian and Steven for helping along the way, and also a big thank you to Mark for allowing us to use his workshop and equipment for the day.
