Introduction excerpt from the book:
“This book is a resource for you when you work on your own. The book is written as though you will be setting up your own workshop at home, so discuss safte concerns, what type of tools to use, and how to set up your own area.”
“I wrote this book in 1992 and sold it as a photocopied-and bound affair. I’ve devided to give it away as a free ebook on my website now. In order to update it, I’ve deleted sources that are no longer in business, and made a few other minor changes.”
I could update it completely, and add color photos, but then it wouldn’t be a free ebook, would it?”
