Lipton has spent nearly 40 years in metalworking trades, and he offers these shop- tested tips and trade secrets for metal fabricators interested in "furthering the art." The author uses nearly 1000 color photographs to illustrate specific methods and techniques for setting up a proper workplace, using milling machines and lathes, working with precision CNC equipment, welding, flame straightening and using abrasive tools for shaping and finishing. A chapter titled "Brain Food" is devoted to developing thinking skills and even explores principles of trigonometry. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Metal working projects confront every homeowner. From installing and maintaining galvanized metal rain gutters and downspouts, to repairing and augmenting ductwork for hot-air heating systems, to cutting and joining iron and copper pipe for plumbing repairs and installations, Metal Working will help the handy homeowner tackle many of these tasks himself, saving money and guaranteeing good results.

Although home metal working is not as widespread as woodworking, many home workshops include metal working equipment. This book will give the reader a basic introduction to metal working tools, skills, and techniques. Covering everything from understanding the differences among the various metals and their alloys, to cutting metal with a hacksaw, the reader will learn all the fundamentals of working with metal through finishing surfaces by grinding, polishing and patinating.
