Some Light Reading

So I haven't got around to making up the "Pictorial Textbook" file yet, but in the meantime here is a little light reading that some may find interesting. "Making The Small Shop Profitable" is a reprint from Lindsey Publications, first published by The American Machinist in 1918. Its a great little book full of articles, kinks and tips for the small shop and covers most aspects of metalwork which would be performed in the small shop. When I have time to scan and package the whole book in a pdf I will upload and share it here.

So here is the first contents page, a couple of "kinks" pages and the first two articles that some may find entertaining and interesting light reading.
