    Default 1961 Spit screen Kombi

    Hi everyone,

    i came accross this forum on a mission to learn about a lathe I recently purchased.
    As part of a restoration build of my 61 VW panel van, I found myself in extremely new waters, and have been learning slowly about metal shaping, welding and repairing the un reparable.

    I recently got back into the project and thought I would share my new approach.

    cheers,

    joe

    Hi Joe. I will be watching your progress with interest. I know how one's commitment to a project comes and goes over time.

    Hopefully work will be starting on my new shed within the month and then it's back into some of my neglected projects.

    Nice idea on the magnet, a mates got a magnabend fabricated but canít afford the copper windings for it, this may help him out.
    By the way Grays have a Yard Clearing auction at Mittagong with a few Kombi bits in it.
