The course includes all tooling, equipment and materials.  

   The content includes: ​

  • Principles of TIG welding, settings, balance, frequency, amperage, pulsing, pedal, 2T, 4T, pre-flow, post flow, up-slope, down slope

  • Equipment - Inverters, gas regulators, torch bodies, electrode types, flow meters

  • Types of Aluminium series and filler rods and their application

  • Preparation and process 

  • Techniques - Tacking, fusion tacking, fusion welding, autogenous welding, pulsing including manual pulsing

  • Argon shielding

  • Back purging and distortion

If you have a specific requirement you'd like to cover during the course please get in touch beforehand.

This is my one day course, and I will personally coach you on a one to one basis, teaching you traditional hand-crafting techniques covering all the main elements of fabrication i.e. cutting, bending, shrinking and stretching. All equipment and materials are included.


Whether you need to make a sub-frame, battery box, brackets or any other parts for your motorcycle project. This courses has you covered.

 The content covers:

  • Tooling requirements - including how to make hand tools, T-dollies and chasers

  • Shrinking - using hand tools and various machines

  • Stretching - Using shot-bags, bossing mallets and various machinery; including the English wheel

  • Beading, flaring and rounding over

  • Tipping an edge, fabricating flanges on a radius 

  • Cutting techniques

  • Bending techniques

  • Concepts of bend allowances whether sheet or tube

  • Tube bending

  • Bracket production and stress point consideration

  • Annealing 

  • Tube notching, by hand and using various types of tools/machinery

MOTORCYCLE TANK BUILDING - 3 day intensive course £1,495

This course covers how to  design and build a motorcycle fuel tank from scratch. Including the skills to make not only basic motorcycle tanks for half-duplex frames (single spine), through to complex superbike tanks, with complex compound curves. The techniques taught enable the student to also replicate any tank. This is particularly relevant as many tanks are becoming increasingly difficult to obtain. This is a three day course and includes all equipment and materials. I guarantee never to have more than a 2:1 student-instructor ratio, thus assuring you of the closest tuition at all times.

The course content includes:

  • Design techniques

  • Templates, formers and buck production

  • Patterns

  • Materials - alloys, differing tempers and useage, filler rod choices

  • Welding process - TIG vs Gas

  • Shaping techniques

  • Fitment process and stages

  • Tank top considerations

  • Base production

  • Fuel tap mounting

  • Fuel pumps - Internal and external

  • Fixing mounts

  • Filler caps

  • Breathers and baffling

  • Leak testing
