Small Farm Implements #1 shows how to build the following: Feed Bags, Shovel, Pitch Fork and Milk Cans primarily using sheet metal and copper tubing.
The Americana Metal Sculpture Series by George Goehl leads from one dvd into the next.
The set so far is composed of: “Small Sculptures That Sell”, “Trees, Trees, Trees”, “The Family Farm” “Small Farm Implements #1”, “Small Farm Implements #2”, “The Train Station”, “The Bank Barn”.
Each dvd leads into the next in the order listed.
In these dvds the oxygen acetylene torch is used to braze and gas weld and a mig welder to tack weld. With two exceptions all mig welds are tack welds. (more on mig welding below).
Materials are minimal. Brazing rod, RG 45, 1/4" square steel, copper and steel sheet metal.
The first Americana building is the Family Farm. This video focuses on building the barn structure, adding the fences, trees and a cupola. (Trees are found in the Tree video).
The next two videos are the Small Farm Implement videos. Adding the implements or equipment one would find around a farm in the early 20th century. These two videos build upon the Small Sculpture that Sell video.
The techniques for the Small Implements carry over to the detail pieces for the Train Station and the Bank Barn.
Just as the techniques for the building the Family Farm carry over to the Train Station and the Bank Barn they will carry over to future dvds in the Americana Series.
The Americana Series is a cumulative learning progression. In other words it would be difficult to do the Bank Barn without going through the Family Farm video and Train Station video.
This series is specifically for the individual that wants to move ahead. Obviously one must be able to braze and do some gas welding. Mig Welding is the easiest of the welding processes and tack welding is even easier. But this is not an instructional video on MIG welding.
(Run time is one hour and 8 minutes).
