@Gene Howe,

Not Kevin, but an English Wheel is used for forming sheet metal into curved shapes.

Think making a fender for a Tin Lizzy from scratch.

Thanks, Larry. You can tell I'm not a metal worker. I have enough problems with wood.:lol:

Wood, metal. whatever. 

Actually I worked in an auto restoration shop for awhile.

Got pretty good on an English Wheel.

A bit of trivia.

Did a little search and found that "English" is a misnomer. The wheel's first use was in France. Made of wood and used to make fitted armor. There! Aren't we so much better informed. You're welcome.:TwoThumbsUp:
