Popular Mechanics Shop Notes Highlights 1943 And 1944

As in the previous uploads these two years had a lot of training information on machinist based war work which I bypassed. Mixed in was a lot of metalworking projects for the home hobbyist. You will find lots of metal lathe tooling projects. Most are tooling to fit the popular South Bend lathes, but they can of course be made to fit any lathe. Mixed in is a variety of other plans and tips and tricks for around the shop. In 1943 you will find a very nice, two part plan, for a mostly wood built foot-powered scroll saw. I will be exploring that further at a later date.

Here's the link for 1943.

And here is the link for 1944.
