FLAME WELDING.


       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.


        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.
