Building an aluminum replica of a victrola phonograph horn (part 2)

The aluminum flashing is razor sharp along the edges, so cutting by hand with shears can result in some nasty cuts. So I broke out the trusty air tools. This air shear glides through the flashing like an air-powered hot knife through metallic butter.


And here’s the finished product. Keep in mind this was done as a practice run to get familiar with the shapes and methods for this piece. The final production pieces will be made from real brass sheet.
