Imagine you took a time machine back to 1953, visited a small coachbuilding shop in Italy, and the following happened to you after you knocked on their door. They welcomed you in and allowed you to participate in the building of an aluminium body for a new Ferrari or Alfa Romeo and taught you all of their methods. That is what you can expect to experience at the Pro Shaper Coachbuilding class.

“I try to take the mystery out of the craft, and I teach a unique method that empowers students. The most difficult challenge is to have the students see the simplicity and ignore the perceived complexity.”

– Wray Schelin


Our English wheel for sale will take you from the basics to advanced without needed to purchase any other metal shaping tools!
