Here's a small English Wheel that I recently completed that uses a C-clamp for the frame. I'm going to use to make some small scale sheetmetal forming of various things, but probably along the lines of a pedal car or smaller.
The full details of how I built it is shown here on my website:

I'm a newbie at shaping sheetmetal in compound curves, so the small scale english wheel will allow me to focus on technique without wasting a bunch of sheetmetal.
I built this in my small garage in China, using a more limited set of tools than what I'm used to in my main shop back home in South Dakota. I eventually plan to buy/make a regular size or large English Wheel for the SD shop.
Let me know if anyone has any questions.
