Flow forming


Made this tool to work with a pneumatic rivet gun for forming metal. I was pointed in the direction of this idea by Eric aka Rudehog on a forum I belong to. Really cool tools for metalshapers on the site www.tinmantech.com. Definitely some quality stuff and really worth checking out.

Big D, check out flow forming on the linked site or do a search on flow forming on youtube. You'll dig it.

Are you doing a press fit or is a threaded insert? Was gonna mess around with our air hammer myself soon. Fay Butler has some great literature about hammers as well. Happy New year also.

It's a press fit, I'm going to post some feedback about it after I get to use it.
