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.
