    Rex It's more than OK to post that video here ....thank you ! Brings back beautiful memories and that is exactly how it was done back then at Scaglietti. it was a good learning curve for me 51 Years ago, and in some ways I continue to work that way now days . But instead of the Maglio , when I emigrated from Italy to Australia I adapted the English wheel method, but some time I use the hammer as well (regarding the video.).. by the look of the shop it was around the Year 1957 /1962

        Glad you enjoyed the video, I appreciate you taking the time to comment. Still amazes me how they went from a few masurements with a folding rule, to a paper pattern, to a car body. I got a long way to go!

          Guys here another video showing the same principle to make a reverse curve used in metalshaping ... but in a much bigger scale , NOTE!! no stretching on the middle of the radius .

            Nice. I wish I would have seen that before I made the reverses for my project.

              Back in 1968 at Scaglietti's.. it was more or less the same what's on on the video , poor conditions in the working area ...no masks, very little work safe and little pay , But I would do it all over again, it was a BIG learning curve for me

                Great stuff Peter, just out of interest the Italian coachbuilders used to stretch metal over a big Square thick lumps of metal was that block of Steel called anything special ??? Because early Ferrari,s had these dimple marks.
                is your old company still going and is there any history out there?.

                I started a L&C BMW in Royal Tunbridge Wells in 1988 ... it’s now a block of Flats.

                  i'm not too sure if it was called a maglio helve hammer?, the wheel is an english machine, european coach builders where more towards hammers. i'm sure peter will confirm this

                The Maglio is a power hammer which is steeped in history.....
