The classic seven book series by Dave Gingery is now available in a special hard bound edition titled, ‘Build Your Own Metal Working Shop From Scrap’. This collector’s edition contains the newly updated and complete 7 book series including; The Charcoal Foundry, The Metal Lathe, The Metal Shaper, The Milling Machine, The Dividing Head, The Drill Press and The Sheet Metal Brake.
Build Your Own Metal Working Shop From Scrap is a progressive series of seven projects. Beginning with a simple charcoal fired foundry, you produce the castings for building the machine tools to equip your shop. Initially the castings are finished by simple hand methods, but it is not long before the developing machines are doing much of the work to produce their own parts. It does not take long to learn the simple craft of pattern-making and sand molding. Each project phase increases your knowledge and skill. There is no need to look for outside help. You can do it all in your own shop. No complicated math—-No exotic equipment required—-No large cash outlay. Lots of work to be sure, and some of it can be downright tedious, but the reward will be a practical small scale machine shop that you might never give yourself permission to buy, assuming you could afford it.
