Popular Mechanics Shop Notes Highlights 1959

Another week of shop notes, this issue of distilled highlights starts of with a plan for a metal lathe made from stock parts, I have seen this one on many locations around the web. There is a nice lathe driven jig saw, a bench punch for punching sheet metal, and a small rod and bolt shear. I hesitated but decided to also include a clutch plan for small machine tools, probably more interesting than useful nowadays. There is an article on identifying metals by spark streams and another on woodwork joints. also find a number of smaller projects sprinkled throughout.
