Popular Mechanics Shop Notes Highlights 1971

The last two weeks have put a good dent in my woodpile, IT'S COLD!! and apparently its headed south. Don't blame Canada, apparently the Russians blew it over, ha ha.

So another shop notes highlights, in this issue you will find lots of lathe based projects and a number of other small single page projects. There is a die holder for threading in the lathe, a carriage limit switch, a lathe indexing attachment, a lathe center indicator, a ball turning attachment and an article on turning plastics in the lathe.

For the woodworker there is a very nice small cabinet workbench for the small shop, a very solid looking tenoning attachment, and an early American gossip bench that would make a beautiful little piece of furniture for a childes room.
