Home Instruction for Sheet Metal Workers - Based on a Series of Articles Originally Published in 'Metal Worker Plumber and Steam Fitter'
Publisher: Owen Press
This vintage book contains a practical instruction manual for the apprentice or assistant sheet metal worker. It includes detailed instructions on cutting, forming, soldering, and preparing full-sized details from architects blue prints, developing the patterns, laying out the work on sheet metal, forming and bending, and assembling. It was originally designed not only to assist the novice to understand the theory of the subject, but mainly to help them master the practical side of sheet metal work. Contents include: "Introductory", "Cutting Curves and Circles", "Tools and Preparations for Soldering", "Soldering Flat and Upright Seams", "Scale and Detail Drawings of Molded Gutter with a Miter", "Scale and Detail Drawings of Square Leader Head", "Octagon Leader Head", 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.
