Metal Shaping Class By Keino Cycles

Here's a great opportunity to learn metalshaping from one of the best, Keino Sasaki. Keino has graciously offered a $50.00 savings to our community by using the code: chopcult when signing up.

Here's what you can expect:

My basic class is focused on the basic fundamentals of metal shaping that will get you going with the solid understanding of the basic techniques with basic tools. 

Class contents


How, Why, Comparison by tool contacts differences and pros and cons.

Demonstration of basic techniques with different tools.

Several Hands-on time throughout the day

Also during the class, I will introduce little more advanced techniques just to show how basic techniques and principles can be applied to different use at the appropriate topic. I am working level 2 of metal shaping class, it's just matter of organizing study materials and appropriate approaches for you understand better. level 2 class coming soon by spring 2017.


I will go through each tool and equipment what /when/how to use.
Aviation snips,electric shear, and beverly shear.
Mallets and shot bag.
Body hammers and dollies.
T-dollies/Post dollies
Tucking fork/Wood stump
Planishing Hammer
English wheel with steel/rubber wheel
20-page textbook that I wrote

The class starts 9am till about 5pm at my shop 12 Van Dyke St Brooklyn NY 11231.

The class is limited to 4 people.

2 people share 1 workstation that consists planishing hammer, set of body hammers, 2 sets of mallets and shot bag. a pair of aviation snips. Small for more one-on-one time with each person. I believe the best way for you learn your skill is you spend time doing them. I will guide you to the right direction with my simplified principles.

Basically, this is the class that I wish I had a chance to attend when I started to shape metal.

I plan to host this class once a month along with level 2 class I am working on. Check back often or sign up on a mailing list for the updated schedule.
