Miscellaneous Cobra Information


 

English Wheel

One of the indispensable tools that I used for making many of the aluminum panels on my Coupe is the English Wheel. John Glover, a master with the English wheel, developed a wheel design that used a fabricated frame rather than the more traditional cast iron frame design.  The attached sketches are John's original design and with a few minor document the tool that I built and used on my project. Click on the following link (highlighted text) for a  PDF copy of the sketches.
