  • Internal shrinking Method.

    Click image for larger version  Name:	6334C507-D62F-49C8-B017-A64BADFC5AF9.png Views:	1 Size:	665.9 KB ID:	5791 Saw this on Facebook , the Gent was making a Ferrari Dino lower front panel l think?, anyhow he cuts a pie cut out of a square piece of steel, and then Fusion gas welds it back.

    so now it looks like a Chinese hat .... then he puts onto 2 sand bags....1 large and 1 very small one ( in Pic )

    Then he blocks in circle blocking towards the middle.....? Shrinking the centre of the panel?

    Next the panel is flipped inside out ?.... then he starts Wheeling.

    He admits he doesn’t like to shrink on the edges of the panel..... is he performing a internal shrink to make the panel thicker than what it was ??

    So when he Wheels the high crown panel it ends up an even thickness.....🧐🧐

    this is something I’ve never seen before.... Who taught him this I wonder.

            I found his Facebook page but not the article shown by MM.

            If you access Facebook on a desktop computer, the link address can be copied and pasted from the address bar,

            Cheers Charlie

                  Gents , Carl has done many videos, and this video is a long way down the list.

                  It’s the 3.36 minute video 😉

                  He,s a typical fred in the shed , And has been restoring Ferrari Dino,s for years.

                  Like I say he’s a bit of a one and possibly couldn’t work with anybody else.

                  l asked him if l could send up Toby for a bit of training.....

                  and his response was ; somebody asked me last year , but one of us would die.....( I thought this was very strong seeing that he puts out loads of videos).

                  strange man/ but talented......

                  All his skills will die with him........... that’s for sure.🤔🤔🧐

                  Any how Team check out the video with a open mind to see if it’s a valid method.

                  making the High crown area of the panel THICKER before you Wheel.....???

                    Peter once you see the video can you see if it’s a valid old-fashioned method....🤔👍

                      Found how to do it..... excuse the hammer

                      you might have to rewatch this video because he only speaks at the start.

                        I can see what is trying to do , I use a different method for internal shrinking with a lot less hammering and a lot cleaner having said that it all depends on the shape is trying to make . I think that his idea is not to thin the metal once he makes the bulbous shape, ( he would have to be making a bulbous shape ) because there is not reverse that big on those Ferrari panels . My way of thinking is that , even if the panel he is making was very bulbous he would not loose that much thickness, if I was making that bulbous shape I would not do it that way I would simply shrink the edges and work inwards with my shrinking a bit more . ( less mess to clean up )

                          Was interesting wasn’t it... Carl doesn’t like shrinking on an edge even though it thickens the metal.
                          Maybe he likes the clean edge for welding ( less distortion ??.)
