In the last article, we look at making and using a handy tool for shrinking metal – tucking forks. This time we’ll look at an alternative called “stump shrinking”. I made a couple of wooden bowl shapes to help me shrink metal. Want to make your own? Let me show you how with some timber blocks and basic tools.

I believe anyone can build their own custom motorcycle.
I believe you should enjoy that sense of satisfaction that comes from creating something with your own hands. I believe you don’t have to pay someone else to do it.
So now I teach people how to build custom motorcycles by helping them build skills and confidence with my articles and training videos. I provide better technical information for custom motorcycle builders.
And I shorten the learning curve getting you there. Rather than having to spend thousands of dollars at a commercial shop, I can teach you to do as much or as little as you want.
