Hasluck

Yes, yet another in the Hasluck series! Like the other volumes some of the material here is covered in Hasluck's monster Metalworking: Tools, Materials & Processes that we've offered for years. But you get additional info here. And like all other Hasluck books, this material is a compilation of articles from Work magazine that existed a century ago in England.

160 Pages, 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 (Softcover), Illustrated

Item #: BK776

Chapters include forges and appliances; hand tools; drawing down and upsetting; welding and punching; principles of formation; ending and ring making; miscellaneous examples of forged work; cranks, model work, and die forging, home-made portable forges, and manipulating steel at the forge. You get much the same info as a multitude of other forging books, but you'll find something a little different here. Remember, this is not about training professional blacksmiths. This was published for people like us. As a result you'll find info on forging small links, connecting rods, and even small crankshafts on the home forge for use in building model engines. You get a book loaded with details, and like the others, you'll wish it were longer because it delivers the goods.
