hello everyone, I'm willing to ride my first English wheel, someone help me , some material in pdf ?
Entire Williams Lowbuck line is just plain stellar; no frills-solid equipment-replaceable parts-made in sleepy little hamlet of 'Norco'; which surprisingly means made in USA.
Remember them? Remember Them!
My take would be Williams tooling, set within this framework http://www.homemadetools.net/forum/a...aw-build-33090. Document it and Guaranteed Tool of the Week.
Speaking of rememberin': In the early 90's, the first reality shows were actually 'real'. East Coast Bike Builder "Indian Larry" and shop was filmed in all phases of motorcycle construction. The chopper itself, as art form has some pretty distinguished hands and minds to emulate, in my estimation he was the pinnacle. That show, single-handed brought resurgence going on today in metal forming and shortage of English Wheels, igniting ALL the new offerings.
Only seen ONE original in entire life. As depicted in every old text on forming, a deep C-shaped casting, definitely the classic pattern for a classic tool.

...we'll learn more by wandering than searching...
I hate to have you go to another site, but if you go to All MetalShaping - Powered by vBulletin, you will find a thread there with nothing but English wheel info. You will find different styles and throat depth's. It is a great site for what you are looking for.
Hope this helps,

Si nos fijamos en el sitio de baja herramienta de dinero que tienen los planes para que usted pueda hacer el marco y esperan que nosotros hacemos en sí chicos para hacer eso. Si usted lo hace, asegúrese de ponerlo! Espero Google translate hizo un buen trabajo, porque no hablo español
