- Disappointed - extremely boring and lacking in information Review by Viv5645
I bought the downloadable video and was very disappointed for these reasons: A) the presentation - lacking in enthusiasm and quickly bored of the monotone voice. I continued watching, having paid good money for the tutorial, but gave up in the end; B) By the lack of planning - "oh, I just remembered . . .", C) He was using modified tools (great, but please show us all your modifications not just the brass sheet you covered your vice with) D) using sheer strength to unfold his work which differentiates against a lot of women, older & younger people etc. I have done some fold forming and yes, strength is useful, but women typically have to find other techniques to accomplish the same result that a stronger man will achieve with relative ease. As a teacher, I have to enthuse and motivate a class, I have to allow for people with different abilities and show universal or different ways to accomplish desired outcomes. I don't recall any info about the metal he preferred to use but was massively irritated by his constant reminders -"whatever you decide", "your choice", "you can do what you want", "it's up to you" and I just want to yell at him to tell me what the deal is and get on with the job! So, all in all, extremely boring and lacking in information. I gave two stars as I felt I could glean some of my money's worth if I skipped through the video without the sound.

- foldforming basics Review by Denny
This is a very exciting and informative tutorial. I found it easy to follow and was able to execute each fold precisely as described.
I had a question regarding hammers and Mr. Ogden answered me personally.
I highly recommend this dvd for those who wish to expand their metal forming skills.
