I did not see a section devoted to introductions so I hope this is a good place to put it. My name is Tim Stachlewitz. I happened to stumble across the link to this forum while surfing.... It looks like I have found a new home!

To date my metal working has been mostly automotive related making patch panels and reworking the sheetmetal on old cars. I have fabricated an English Wheel, Pneunmatic Planishing Hammer, various T and other shaped stakes.

I am close to retiring and have wanted to branch out into more artistic pursuits. I have dabbled in making some copper roses and a few other artsy metal creations. I come here hoping to learn and add to the community as much as I can.

Here are a few pictures of some of my work

Welcome to MAF! Hot Rod and auto stuff is definitely art. In fact, it's where a lot of us get started on the other stuff. I like what you've shown us, jump right in.
