So recently my attention was drawn to some of the insane bead rolling artwork of, in particular Jamey Jordan.I was so impressed that I jumped in with both feet and added a few new toys to the already cramped Alikat workshop. I got myself an electric bead roller, and a 30 tonne shop press. I invested in quite a bit of tooling, punches, dimple dies and metal forming dies.
Here you can see a WW2 Bomber seat, and how that has been the influence for this Hot Rod seat that someone else has made
