Still trying to figure out my edge former so I whipped this out. I think it turned out incredible... Usually things like this end up as scrap when I touch 'em.

Drew up a shape on a piece of paper real quick, traced it onto some aluminum and hacked it out.



Ran it through the slip roll to give it a bit of a curve and tried it on with some duct tape





Did a little creative measuring... Made some brackets to mount it to the headlight ears, and viola!









Now maybe someday I'll start on the tank...

I've done quite a few of them, but that is one of the few that I am proud to show pics of. The clients usually pick some off-the-wall wood or color combo that is hideous. There is really nothing to watch out for, as long as you follow the directions. Over the years, I have learned to alter them a little bit to handle the weight of all of that "ornate-ness."

Here is a more basic one:



wow. another nice one...you should be proud of that too.

thanks a bunch for the link.

I'm getting there... I'm in the process of building some radius fingers for my brake. Then all of the bends would have a large (2" dia) curve to them. Long ways to go there still.

I made a reactive shot gun target from some misc stuff in the garage , the base was an extension I had made for a bike loading ramp for a taller pick up, the black section was a rack that I had on an old drz400, and then just some scrap pieces of steel and threaded rod .
best part is the targets are only a nickle a piece , and can be hit multiple times

Looks fantastic but all I can see is that thing peeling a nice curly-cue of skin from your chesticles to your testicles in a crash.

Some Brass Hammers



Three brass hammers. The handles are Birdseye Maple, Satina, and Cherry, The head weights are about 6 oz, 12oz, and 32 oz. The rubber on the larger ones are pieces of conveyer belt cut out with a hole saw and glued on with Urethane glue. If I didn't have access to some scrap brass, they would have been expensive hammers.

Very Nice.

Post the link - I doubt it's against any rules and I for one would love to see the story...
