In 1904 and 1905 Amateur Work Magazine published a series of articles on pattern making for the amateur home hobbyist. The well illustrated articles cover the subject very well without getting too technical (industrial). The articles provide good instruction for the home hobbyist looking to cast his own creations.
To fill up the empty spaces, I inserted machine (I like lots of shiny handles, lol) and casting pictures from Canadian Machinery and Amateur Work volumes. I took some time to compile and clean up this 49 page file, I think it turned out nice. If you don't plan on doing any casting, but enjoy this type of subject matter, you will like this cleaned up file.
