    Nice work. This just confirms, that I need to go ahead and get formal training, in sheetmetal ductwork modifications.

    Unfortunately you likely won't work anywhere that allows you to hand make a fitting like that anymore.

    No formal training here, just lots of practice and trial and error. On the company and on my own time/dime.

    Anyone can do it, it's just a matter of time and practice. Well maybe not anyone but anyone with at least half a brain.

    It's a shame I covered it up with mastic and insulation today and buried it then in the morning it'll be covered behind drywall not to be seen again for a long long time.

    That is kick a$$! I would have taken a sharpie and signed it and included my cell phone number. In 40yrs when someone sees it they will say "what's with 7 numbers, we use 12 numbers now"

    I did autograph it but it's not legible, in mastic no less.

    Like a hi tech exhaust on the turbo service van. I am having trouble picking the spot to inject the dry air from my dehumidifier? No to worry, I'll find a spot.

    Very nice. I love making fittings and love to look at old duct systems where everything up to the boot was square duct. Seeing this kind of fitting is a real joy.

    So as one tinner to another how did you do it? Normally the side facing the camera would have 1/4 edges and the narrow sides would have Pittsburghs but you can't run a curve through a Pittsburgh machine so how did you get the curve in the middle?

    The 4x10 drop ell in the middle is a separate piece. The pants pieces are 1/4" and the 6" sidewalls are Pittsburgh. The drop ell is Pittsburgh heel and throat and 1/4 bend on the sidewall

    Mind you, my bead roller is broken so all the radius 1/4s are notched every 1/2" and bent individually with lineman pliers 😲

    The one photo it looks like a seperate piece but then another photos looked like the side was one solid piece. You need to spend some of your moldy money on a new roller. I have seen them for the top of the Pittsburgh but never used one, mine is still a hand crank.

    You should be able to get a new roller or did he break the mechanism. I have a box of different rollers for mine the only problem is not all of them have a mate.
