If you have had your lathe stuck in a corner of the garage for years, this is book is for you! The Metalworker's Workshop is a complete guide to building or converting a workshop space and then equipping it to serve a wide range of metalworking activities, including model engineering, model making, car restoration, and clockmaking. It explains all the essential requirements of the workshop environment: planning, heating and lighting, storage, and condensation control, plus health and safety factors. It then explains in detail the choice of various tools and equipment for differing tasks so the new workshop owner can avoid making unwise purchases. Also included are expert reviews on lathes, drilling and milling machines, and more. Even if you think your workshop is already complete, you'll discover eye-opening new information here. This book is based on a very popular series of articles that originally appeared in the pages of Model Engineers' Workshop magazine, and which have been revised for publication in this edition.
