Product Information

"The working of metal in sheet form is light, interesting and instructive. The making of kitchen utensils, such as pans, sugar scoops, funnels, dustpans, canteens, bread boxes and other articles is attractive to most boys. A large number of hand operated machines are used and the training afforded by these machines is valuable. Boys like wood turning because they can run the machines for themselves. In the same way they become interested in the machines used to bend and shape metal and can make a larger variety of useful products than in nearly any other school shop."

Originally published in the 1910s, this book contains many practical sheet-metal projects (designed for the students in Indiana Secondary Schools back then) with patterns and instructions, as well as notes on equipment, materials and shop methods.
