Aircraft Sheet Metal Work
You learn to work sheet metal in the most basic terms. You'll see a man removing wrinkles from a curved sheet using a planishing hammer and bumping stake. And a man bending an extrusion to an irregular shape using a rawhide hammer over a V block. Or a man using a bucking bar while riveting. Or a man using a vixen file to rapidly trim an aluminum alloy sheet.
This is all
nuts-and-bolts how-to. No fancy theory or math. One of the best sheet metal
books I've ever seen. Just what you need to help you restore your Bugatti.
