Metal workshop

In today’s metal workshop with Dallas I learnt how to use the machinery traditionally/usually used by artists or makers using forms of metal in their work, which range from those that cut materials to those that augment and attach metal to other materials at the owners discretion.

these are some examples of the machinery used
