Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

You can chuck a piece of sheet metal in a lathe and using simple tools spin it into a smoothly contoured shape that can become anything from a teapot to a missile nose cone. Here you'll learn historical facts about metal spinning, why people are interested in spinning, the necessary mechanical setups, spinning tools, chucks for spinning, the treatment of different metals, lubricants to be used, the actual process of spinning, and educational as well as useful projects.
Sure, you can turn a bronze bushing, but can you turn a sheet of copper into a beautiful vase or candlestick?

A simply written 1936 technical school textbook. Very few people, including expert metal workers, know how to spin. You can learn right here.
