The Rat was unmounted to make some new modifications to the frame , I modiefied the frame for the second time to a single downtube  and a ghoosenneck style ! Other nice projects captured my interest so the frame stayed in the Backyard , till now ...:) The frame will Go To Alexandru in Chisinau to rebuild the rat with the new frame!

Shrinking hammer test

Now that the whole day was only about cleaning ,  I decided to make a nice  lamp , for reading Great books in the evening .
decided to push stretching to the limit using  a sheet 1.5mm alloy  .. and after several tests got to this nice mount for the Lamp :)

The sample in the images below  is made from straight  sheet metal alloy !

A shape like this was simply impossible  for me to shrink by hammer ! or maybe if it would be possible ( nothing is impossible )... but probably  with a lot of work and some helping tools like a shaping stencil  ( that would help forming it , and would be very expensive to produce )

As you can see in the image above there is a big difference between the steel dies and the Teflon dies ( used for alloy )

Now that the light is on I can get back to reading :)
