Ron Covell Teaches Rollation, It’s A Word! And A Technique To Learn So You Can Make Better Sheet Metal Patterns.
If the name Ron Covell doesn’t mean anything to you, then you haven’t done much research or study on the topic of sheet metal fabrication. Ron is a legend in the metal working world, and has been a major player in the metal shaping industry for decades. He’s also one of the premier metal shaping instructors in the world and has classes, instructional videos, and more that you can be involved in as well. Thanks to the world of YouTube, you can also learn enough to wet your whistle by watching his videos. In this three part series, Ron teaches us about Rollation. I know, I know, it sounds like a Chad word, but it makes sense and is a great way to make accurate patterns for simple and intricate metal shaping both. In this first video you’ll see Ron making cones that could be used for all kinds of things. I see them and think shifter mount pedestal, exhaust openings, turbo or supercharger inlets, and more. These are some cool pieces I know you could find a use for. And don’t forget, these are just base shapes that can be cut and used for all kinds of things.
Again, this is the first in a series of videos and we’ll bring you the next two this week as well. But for now, watch this. It will absolutely make sense the moment you see it, and I’m sure you too can be making patterns like this in no time!
