                  so the left hand side is pretty much at this stage now

                  so the plan now is to make the right hand side look like this...

                  after the paper pattern was taken from the left hand side, i started hammering this up..

                  the majority of the stretching was done around where my finger is, this area is getting trimmed off so it doesn't matter what happens to this. a while ago after looking at my scrap pile it occurred to me what peter had said in passing. he creates his returns while keeping material thickness... while looking at my pieces of steel i had trimmed off pieces i had made i realized that they were all usable pieces, as in they were untouched by any hammer marks. so a couple of months ago i started stretching the crap out of the parts i'm cutting off, i do this as it starts to create the return edge without having to actually hit the part i'm keeping, any stretching needed on the part is then minimal. i believe this is what he does but i can't confirm it lol

                          hey dennis, a good old fashioned hammer......


                          genuinely an old fashioned hammer lol, hammer out the shape in the centre but not just one way. hammer out the shape one way on the sandbag then hammer out the other. any stretching on the dolly i do near the edge which is getting cut off anyway, then hammer along the length towards the end. the shapes i made some shapes i like, cut them out in steel then make a sheet steel with holes the same shape in it. clamp the sheet with holes on, lightly run it through the wheel to find the edges, then tape the shapes to the opposite side. then run it through the wheel a little harder. mine are only 2mm thick steel, 5mm would have been nicer but it's fine

                          i'll take a pic of the bits i made
                          thanks neil
