TopTech Finder is officially launching the expanded website at the 2013 SEMA Show (booth 10747).

The Eastwood Company has launched a new Bench-Top English Wheel – professional quality with a knock-down design! English Wheels have been staple tools of metal fabricators for years, but overall size and price constraints have often kept them out of reach of DIY-hobbyists and small shops. Eastwood’s new Bench-Top English Wheel overcomes those issues. Eastwood’s English Wheel offers a 20" throat and 18" internal height to make this unit one of the biggest bench-top English Wheels on the market. "When designing this English Wheel, we wanted to offer a professional quality tool that was within reach of DIY-metal shapers and small fabrication shops," said Mark Robidoux, Eastwood Product Manager. "Shipping a large item like an English Wheel can be costly, but the knockdown design we engineered into this English Wheel allows it to ship via Fed-Ex or UPS."

How do new steel bodies affect the restoration industry?
A SEMA Press Conference – Wednesday, November 6, 2013
Joe Whitaker of Real Deal Steel, LLC and Nate Miller of Thoroughbred International discuss the current and future impact that new reproduction steel vehicle bodies have on the automotive aftermarket
Position in the marketplace:
• Competitors –pricing ($30K for an Experi-Metal body but under $15K for an RDS)
• Keep cost low to introduce as many new bodies as possible to improve reputation for quality, generate excitement among retailers
• Project cars: Chop Cut Rebuild 56, Street Rodder 40 and 55
• Advantage of US-built (stigma, cost, employ US workers, trickle-down to local economy)
• RDS has constructed (102) 55-57 bodies, (10) 1940 Ford coupe bodies and (1) 1969 Camaro coupe body to date
Why a new body?
• Scarcity of originals of certain body styles
• Allows shop or customer to build completely new classic car
