BASIC BENCHWORK BY LES OLDRIDGE. BOOK NUMBER 18 IN THE WORKSHOP PRACTICE SERIES. THIS BOOK IS BRAND NEW.
First published 1988, this edition published 2000. A considerable amount of engineering work takes place on the bench, using hand tools and techniques which are second nature to those who earn their living in an engineering environment; they probably learned at a technical college, as an apprentice, or possibly by the example of older and more experienced workmates. The amateur engineer or hobbyist may not have enjoyed such advantages and, for example, may break a lot of hacksaw blades because he has not been shown how to use the saw or what sort of blades he should be using. This book sets out to cover all the normal bench processes in a simple informative manner. Softbound, 127 pages, black & white illustrations. Book measures approx. 15 cm wide x 21 cm long.
