1951 Popular Science Annual Part 4

So I found another 9 pages of short projects for the hobby machinist and shop tinkerer in the 1951 PS annual. There is a belt idler for tightening drive belts, a geared speed reduction for your drill press, as low as 215 rpm, a chisel holder to save your knuckles, a faceplate for milling in the lathe,making hollow punches, making toy wheels, and a rotary planer for planing small work in your drill press with instructions.

So this does it for this annual. There seems to be some interest so I assembled the previous uploads and these just listed, into one 35 page pdf for convenience.
