    George, thanks for this video. I needed to cut a piece of sheet metal
    under my dishwasher and I already have the tin snips to do it. You saved
    me some money.

    George, any idea how to curl sheet metal? I’m running 1/8″ diameter rod
    through it and connecting two pieces to make something like a piano hinge.

    I’m looking to make a replica piece of medieval armor. What tools do you
    recommend for cutting, welding, and shaping the steel?

  8. The Sheet Metal Kid says:

    Great tool advice! There is also unishears you can use, maybe I can get a
    video up on how to use those as well!

    Thanks for the comment on sheet metal cutting tools. Noticed your
    “1964chevy626”. Back in 1957 I had a 54 chevy. I can’t remember whether it
    was two door or four door. I do remember it was a good tight car.

  11. George Goehl says:

    Thanks for the comment. You make me wish I was giving classes.

  12. George Goehl says:

    For armor, I’d suggest doing a search for, “How To Make Armour?”. Or “how
    to make armor DIY”. There are web sites and YouTube videos dedicated to
    your subject. Much better information than I can offer.

  13. Justin Gerrish says:

    Thanks for the advice.

  14. George Goehl says:

    Thanks! Sometimes people have trouble finding sheet metal. The older
    computer cases were made of some quality sheet metal. Old or broken
    appliances are another source for sheet metal.

  15. Gareth Davidson says:

    Came here with a need to cut a single piece of metal, left with a desire to
    build my own workshop. Great stuff, thanks!

    That Lang nibbler looks like a great cutting tool. Thanks for the video, it
    is the first time I have seen one of those. I couldn’t find a price If they
    are reasonably priced it is a perfect tool for the home shop.

  17. George Goehl says:

    That’s a sweet looking 54.

  18. Bartezz12345 says:

    I think the original ones are Turner Nibbler but I found a clone on Amazon
    for around $40…

    Excellent use of an old computer case cover.

  20. Justin Gerrish says:

    I was wondering if you could give me some input on a air nibbler for making
    cuts on 18 gauge sheet metal.

  21. George Goehl says:

    Thanks for the comment. Yes, that shear is a classic. I too love tools.
    Unfortunately I am running out of room for adding many more tools.

  22. George Goehl says:

    Thanks for the kind comment. I do do some relaxation audio but
    unfortunately I can’t put a link in a YouTube reply.

  23. George Goehl says:

    Thanks for the information.

    Yes, I currently own a 1954 Chevy 2dr belair. I searched YouTube for metal
    working tips. I’m working some sheet metal on my car I have a quick video
    on YouTube if your interested on what it looks like.

    I’ve been collecting sheet metal (ask my wife…) and have used it in a few
    projects. Good tip using old computer cases.
