Flame Welding is done by heating the metal to be welded with a
reducing flame, to a temperature just below the
melting point. this causes the surface of the metal
to begin flowing, and the contact points flow
together and weld.
Hand Blowing is a method of forming metal by creating a
sealed form such as a cylinder with a bottom. The
top edge is then sealed and a hydrolic fluid is
then pumped into the cylinder. If the cylinder is
placed in a die, then the expanding hydraulic fluid
will push the metal into the form of the die.
