Part Two Foldforming refers to a variety of 'folds' that generate a large selection of three dimensional forms in sheet metal. Instead of forcing a shape into the metal, foldforming relies upon the metals property by hammering and pulling to produce the shapes. The fact that there are so many types of folds that can be used in so many combinations, the results can be so varied, even the original shape of the material bears some influence to the finished design. In these two films, Andrew shows you how to form a Good fold. This is a variation to the Plunket Fold where the 'legs' are trimmed so that the shorter the 'legs' the more curvature the gold makes. Also Andrew forges the fold initially and then use the rolling mill to work the metal.
