Try Pick'n yer nose, or scratch'n yer balls, with Metal Mittens!!!
Shoudda used these in "Silance Of The Lambs"!!!!!
Works better when I follow drections!!
Take a look at how these were made... remember this is before CAD CAM.. and these were formed on what i think is called an english wheel (bends metal) and construction is pure artistry.. Sorta wonder if they can even do it today.. I know one way they tell the age of chains is if the links were individually forged or welded.. Those old boys had skill..
the most common use nowadays is NASCAR teams use them to form the sheet metal on their race cars, it's almost a lost art.
I just watched that NASCAR dvd last night that had the history and they showed some of the super shops and one scene showed them forming the panels on a wheel. I figured all of their stuff would be stamped. I thought only the custom rod shops had this kind of craftsmen these days.
I have seen him make gas tanks, fenders and whatever else he wants. West Coast Choppers.
a lot of chopper guys have used the english wheel,they are good for shooting blood out of the tip of your fingers if you so happen to get a finger involved in the process of shaping metal on one.
