Hello,

I have a few sheetmetal designs so far. They are all "developable surfaces", I am trying to upload some photos (cad renderings, actually). I started a new job that makes desktop metal working equipment and some jewelry making tools, so if anybody has any nifty ideas that could be useful and not yet produced, I would happily discuss any ideas.(It would be cool to be the new guy and come up with neat new equipment ideas.) Would round forms (lathe parts) that had either "constantly increasing curvature" or "constantly decreasing curvature" be useful?

New to the site so I thought perhaps I ought to share a few of my initial pieces, '07-'08, first: hand hammered, 16 ga. sheet metal used for upper + lower (lower not pictured) shells, head, neck and feet.
