Here are a couple of pictures of flare construction for my second video...this shows what a great tool an english wheel is. From lumpy to fairly smooth in about 15 minutes....still needs work.

Thanks guys! This is a customer car. I don't usually take on work, but I wanted to show how to make these big flares.

Hey John!

Great work! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif[/img] How much experience do you have with the E-wheel?

I've just finnished my home made English wheel. I found some tips on how to make one n Rodding rondtable site (or something similar) I just started to test it and it seems to work just fine!

I'll post some pics of the work I'm about to do with it later. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Hebster, thanks for the kind words. I've spent hundreds of hours on the e-wheel. It can be a very frustrating tool to learn until you get a few simple concepts down. Let me know when you've played with it a little bit, and I'll help if I can.
