"How To.............." Member Paul Woods has suggested a ‘How To……….’ forum. And here it is! This forum is for all you great model makers to share with the rest of us, you particular or unique way of doing things! How do you make elliptical springs, eyebolts, and wheels etc? Are you good at silver soldering, scale upholstery work or making miniature barrels? I would like to see some of these methods explained in detail, and hope that this will then lead to others contributing to the same topic. I do believe that no matter how adept we are at doing something, there maybe an easer, quicker, cheaper way of doing it! Please share your thoughts and methods here. ~~ jraah ~~

Wink Tin toutorial.

Since I felt my arm being twisted. I have posted this here thinking it to be a how to..... and not a discussion however John you can move it if you feel the need.

This is a small manual I used in a class I taught for the Guild School in Castine Maine. I tried this as a PDF attachment but it kept failing. It works as a jpeg so jpeg it is. I will try to cover the basics of tin work for you but it will take a while so have patience. You answer may not be here today but maybe another posting so hang on. The first lessons will be basic lay out. This works for all thin metals, paper and probably even plastic. I usually lay my patterns out on old file folders. You can cut them out and assemble them with glue for a test.

When done I expect to see some tin ware appearing on this forum and not mine. :D:D:D:D

This is the cover but has the first basic for flat work.

" Since I felt my arm being twisted. " Hey Bill, I resemble that remark.

Thank you very much for posting the pamplet. I know I will work to make use of it and I'm sure that lots of the other folks will enjoy learning from you.

Sorry, hope your arm is feeling better.

If there is enough interest I can go on with making special tools, making seams, forming and shaping, soldering etc.
