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.
