Forge-Practice - Elementary
Publisher: Owen Press
This vintage book contains a complete and comprehensive guide to proper forge practice. It includes information on everything from welding to tool forging, and will be of considerable utility to students and apprentices. "Forge-Practice - Elementary" is ideal for beginners and would make for a worthy addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: "General Description of Forge and Tools", "Welding", "Calculation of Stock for Bent Shapes", "Upsetting, Drawing Out, and Bending", "Simple Forged Work", "Calculation of Stock; and Making of General Forgings", "Steam-Hammer Work", "Duplicate Work", "Metallurgy of Iron and Steel", "Tool-Steel Work", et cetera. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on metal work.
