I just wanted to make everyone aware of the work being done by David Huang and have you view his incredible website.
David raises vessels and often will chase and model his designs onto the surface. He is free with his information and has recently completed a vessel for me commissioned by my wife for our 30th wedding anniversary.

Hi All, Have any of you tried using a hammer handpiece like the Foredom 15 to drive chasing tools?
Have any of you tried using a compressor driven air hammer to do larger pieces? Their are some illustrations in the book "Moving Metal" but the descriptive text is pretty limited.

After seeing some vases made from copper pipe, I acquired a bunch of scrap 2" Type L copper pipe at the scrap yard. I figured I'd start making some chasing tool holders for myself. To do this, I made a mandrel to do some chasing and hammer texture on the pipe. I guess these could also be pen/pencil holders for someone's desk also. To make the mandrel, I used 1 1/2 ID black iron pipe. It's outside diameter is just under 2 inches so the copper pipe slides right over it. I then welded some 2" construction washers on the ended, ground it smooth and pushed a rod through the holes. I then welded some heave angle iron onto a plate and made cutouts on top so the rod would rest in it and be able to easily rotate. I can now slide the copper pipe on the mandrel and chase and texture the outside of the pipe. Here are some pix:
