Gorsh. Can you guys tell I'm blushing?

Here is the lower edge of the toe board.

I had my wife take a picture of me tipping the curved edge of the lower lip on the flat wheel of my English Wheel. This is done by putting a piece of cardboard or something similar under the axle of the lower anvil (wheel) and then working your piece through it tipping the flange you want to bend. After each pass you adjust it with the shrinker/stretcher jaws to add or remove material as needed. Many people use their bead roller with flat dies or tipping dies to do the same thing.

Tipping the lower flange where the toe board meets the floor board.

Here is where the piece will go.

A good view of the final piece.
