    Well, it looks like I need to shape some aluminum sheets as part of my build. I have already found the dollies I need to get the shapes I want, but now I have to purchase some hammers for both forming and planishing the pieces.


    There are so many different shapes, sizes and material choicesin hammers to choose from that I don't know where to start.


    Anyone havesome recommendations?


    Thanks In Advance,


    Ed

    go to http://www.tinmantech.com/for good tools and explanation of how to use them. That said, I bought his "intro to aluminum" VHS tape set (about $100) and am pretty happy with what I've learned. I'll offer them for $50 if you are interested.He (tinman) is an expert and you should attend his seminars in Oshkosh if you ever can.
