Metal Spinning is a metalworking process by which a disc or tube of metal is rotated at high speed and formed into an axially symmetric part. Metal spinning ranges from an artisan's specialty to the most advantageous way to form round metal parts for commercial applications. Artisans use the process to produce architectural detail, specialty lighting, decorative household goods and urns.
From the standpoint of the craftsman, metal spinning is a craft which is highly desirable of attainment and which may replace beaten-metal work in some cases, or, in many cases be used in connection with it. The principal field of the metal spinner, however, is the production of forms for plated ware.
Originally published in the 1900s, this handbook is written for the double purpose of "making it possible for amateurs to be helped in metal spinning and to renew this craft where metal spinning is really more serviceable than its substitutes".
