Firebox Door Sheet Flanged
Both sides are already down, here we are bending the top. Bret pounds down the new sheet with the wood faced hammer, as Jeff Eagle heats the other corner.

Firebox Door Sheet Flanged

Tuesday, July 16, 2002 by Martin Adams

The entire flanging process can be seen in this photo. Notice how the new sheet is clamped to the old sheet/die near to the edges to be formed. Besides using ARPA’s one million BTU torch, we also need to thank George Lavacot for loaning us his large torch.
