Learning the English Wheel available in Paperback
Despite the fact that thousands of English-wheel machines have been sold the past ten years, no book has been dedicated to English wheeling until now. Owners of these machines have been at a loss on how to really use them because of the lack of detailed published material.
This new book from Wolfgang Publications covers all aspects of English wheeling: from making your own wheel to learning the basics and from fabricating high-crown panels to creating reverse flares.
The photos used throughout the book illustrate what makes a good English wheel and exactly how to use an English wheel. Sidebars and interviews with famous wheelers and fabricators from around the world give personal insight from the best of the best.
As a serious auto hobbyist, long-time English wheeler, published author, and retired shop teacher William Longyard is ideally suited to finally lift the veil of missing and incorrect information regarding the best and most productive use of the English wheel.

I was very surprised to be captured by this book from the first sentence. "There is no such thing as an 'English Wheel.'" Well, that certainly got my attention. The book was fascinating and is a wonderful and informative step-by-step guide. I loved it!
