The book covers the full subject of pattern design and building. There is good coverage of many examples of small patterns useful for the home caster and also covers the methods of producing huge industrial castings such as a 50 ton, hydraulic press. head casting or huge pump and turbine housings.
There is a very nice chapter on match plate work for low cost production work, for the caster who is going to make multiple castings of an item.
