Step by Step Metalwork 2 DIGITAL EDITION


The printed edition of this book is no longer available but  thanks to the kindness of the author's family is reintroduced  as a DIGITAL BOOK for viewing on a computer, iPad, iPhone or android mobile. Not downloadable on to a 'Kindle' or similar reader, or onto a 'Tablet".

The second in a brilliant trilogy of books, all published in 1972 by teacher Kenneth Wells, based on his lesson notes for classes he ran to teach older pupils the basics of metalwork and using machine tools. He aim was that each pupil would have a complete example of their work to take home at the end of the school year.

The projects in this first book are, obviously the simplest, but they will teach the beginner a lot, including introducing them to foundrywork. The projects here are redolent in design of the late 1960s and early 70s, and are a Table lampm, a Towel rail, a Book rack, a Junior hacksaw, a Toast rack, an Inspection lamp, a Fish dish, and a Magazine rack. A number of these items are intended to be plastic coated and this book includes details of how this is done, and how to make a fluidizing tank. AND all these items will be useful!

72 landscape format pages, appearing singly so that the drawings and vast numbers of B&W photos appear as large as possible.

Great for adult beginners, or if you are experienced, and want to start the young generation on metawork; tuition really doesn't get better than this series!
