This book and our recently released sheet metal DVD are just the first examples of this plan.” Sheet Metal Building Basics covers the fundamentals that everyone starting a sheet metal project should know, plus some advanced material on stress and fatigue.

Excellent book. I had a lot of questions and the book answered them. I know I can review the FAA manuals and get some of this or all of this. However, the book read well. I am building an aluminum airplane. I have several sets of plans now and it looks like I will be going with a kit. It was the help of these books that made it possible for me to come to that determination. I am able to save myself thousands of dollars due to the increased knowledge I found in the books along with my personal skills. The book really helped with my confidence level.
