Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:


Actually this is another great collection of articles from Machinery magazine from 1915 and earlier. We first reprinted this book more than ten years ago but did not print more when we ran out. Now it's back.

Learn how to use buttons to precisely located holes, use disks, accurately divide a circle, generate a large index plate and more. Learn secrets of lapping which is a form of hand grinding so as to create ultra finished metal surfaces. Learn about taps for internal and external work, method of using a flat lap, charging laps, rotary diamond lap, and more. If you want to duplicate parts on a wood lathe a simple way is to make a forming tool that has ground into it a contour of the part you're making. You push the tool into the wood and the part appears quickly and exactly the same as all the others.

Chapter three will teach you how to make and use forming tools for metal. Then you learn to make accurate threading tools, grind threads on taps, test the lead of a thread, and solve problems with thread chasers. Chapter six will show you how to make a precise straightedge, surface plate, season cast iron and steel, flute angular cutters, sharpen end mills, make reamers and taps and much more.

Another chapter covers the use of a bench lathe for precise work while another chapter goes into micrometers, gages, sine-bars, depth gages and other precision measurement techniques. These are all short articles, straight-to-the-point, easy to read, and most are well illustrated. Good book. Loaded with hints and tips. Plenty to learn. If you didn't get copy years ago, now's your chance.

Synopsis:


Take a hammer, a panel of sheet metal, and plenty of skill and you can produce everything from a candy dish to a suit of armour. In other words, repousse is about turning a flat piece of metal into a curved three dimensional object.

No, you won't be taught how to make a suit of armour, but these basic projects will get you started in the right direction. You'll make a square mat, square tray, octagonal tray, round tray, matchbox holder, finger plate, letter rack, pen rest, gong, photo frame, sconce, salver, decorative panel, postcard rack, elliptical tray, clock case and a thermometer stand.

Since this is "a scheme of sheet metalwork for schools and amateurs", you get beautiful photos and many drawings of plans and technique. These simple projects presented in this simple, low-cost 1905 book offer a great way to learn basic skills.
