Build Your Own Metal Working Shop from Scrap Book 1 The Charcoal Foundry 80 pages


First in the Dave Gingery series on making your own machine tools described in the Engineering section, this book explains the basics of pattern making and molding in very clear and simple language, plus gives instructions for making a simple charcoal fired furnace capable of melting brass and aluminium. Tremendous first book on foundrywork!

The complete series of 7 titles describes how to build a complete set of machine tools at very little cost, using scrap metals. The series is in a fixed sequence, in that each machine helps build the next, but each book stands on its own, if you already have access to workshop equipment. As described, quite a lot of home foundry work is involved, hence this book.  Worldwide sales of this series now exceed 100,000, so 99, 999 other people like it..... All titles well illustrated.All Paperback.
