Playing with my new toy, practicing cutting louvres.
Looks very good Duncan, can you elaborate a bit on your tools and methodology. I'm about to start on the new bonnet sides for our single seater special

Cheers

I had a pair of wheels made for a 23" deep-throat swager. They cut and form and I finish of by hand. The idea came from this pic on google images and also from Lazze metalwork videos on youtube. The machine in the pic looks a bit lightweight to me, I bought a similar one and had to send it back as it tended to twist even under light pressure.
To set up it's a bit pricey for a one-off...if you want some cutting in panels for you to make into bonnet sides send me a PM


Greig, Ive just traced your profile and realised you're in the Antipodes, oops!
