Book Review: Build Your Own Metalworking Shop from Scrap: Series Set (Gingery books)

Build Your Own Metalworking Shop from Scrap: Series Set (Gingery books)

by David Gingery

These booklets are a how-to series that walks the reader through making tools from the basics.  The scope is stunning.  I think the execution falls short.  The foundry section at least is not very functional.  I’m not sure about the build quality of the metal lathe, though it’s certainly a place to start.

I’m glad to have these books and plan on building the lathe.  I’m going a different direction with the foundry, green sand and other issues.

I think the books are a great buy.
