Popular Mechanics Shop Notes Highlights 1967

In this installment of shop notes highlights we start off with a plan for a nice heavy duty looking abrasive cutoff machine. Next a lathe flex shaft adapter followed by a nice article with 4 projects on working with mild steel pipe. There is a nice precision grinding jig and a nice plan for an inclinometer for measuring angles.

For the woodworker there is a great plan for a butterfly trestle table and a neat tiltable router jig that produces some interesting work.

Finally a long 3 part article on " How to Get Started With Metal Turning" containing all the basics to begin enjoying metal turning on a small lathe.
