"Metal Spinning"

So I got into the shop for an hr. this morning and the look of the way the engine cable was hanging was starting to bother me, so I welded a short, side extension to the cable support piping.

There we go, thats better.


So as promised here is a copy of "Metal Spinning". This is a reprint by Lindsey Publications, the original was published in 1936 and was written as an instruction manual for the novice. You will find info on what is required to set up your lathe for spinning and the tools required. The last chapter is a collection of projects for the novice to try out. Nice little manual on a hobby that you seldom see anymore. My Rockwell/Delta lathe is certainly heavy enough, I'll have to try it sometime.

To download "Metal Spinning" go to my Books - Free Downloads page. # 59 - 11 MB - pdf.
