Popular Mechanics Shop Notes Highlights 1957

So with the garage ventilated door, I have moved on to the door roll-up drum. This is a first for me and as mentioned before I have not seen similar commercial constructions, so it involves alot of planing and second guessing to try to get it right the first time. If I get the roll-up drum finished today, I will post some pictures later.

This weeks PMSN's highlights is directed at the hobby machinist, lots of tips and tricks to assist the home shop machinist. There are plans for a number accessories, a lathe powered filer, easy indexing head for gear cutting, small shop arbor press, automotive piston based indexing head, and a nice hand milling attachment.

For info. articles there is a nice article on machining metal tubing, one on burnishing metal and another on lathe turning tools, among others.
