Baileigh free power hammer / metal shaping / bead rolling training
Baileigh is offering a free metal shaping seminar on January 12th. We have over 30 students and around 10 instructors. Many of them are big names in metal shaping. We have a nice mix of hot rod builders, airplane guys, chopper builders, Ferrari builders, blacksmiths and metal shapers and sculptors. They are all coming to Wisconsin from all over the country, all for the love of metal shaping. We will be teaching the students how to use power hammers, shrinking dies, reciprocating hammers, planishing hammers, bead rollers, shrinker / stretchers, English wheels and plenty of other metal shaping tools. Each student will leave with at least 2 projects they designed and built themselves.

This looks to be a new chapter in Baileigh’s future. A training and development program for the metal shapers out there. We were trying to limit the class to 25 students, but had over 60 guys interested in coming. With this much interest we will be having these on a regular basis. Every student is from a forum, and most of them are from the The Jalopy Journal hot rod forum forum so it should be a blast.

Please stay tuned to this thread as I will be providing live coverage of the event.

These are a couple of our students from our latest free metal shaping class.
The students started with a flat sheet of aluminum, then cut out a circle and ran them through the power hammer with the thumbnail shrinking dies.

Check out the video here:

The students then ran their projects through the planishing dies on the power hammer to smooth them out and put a nice radius on them.
