Complete Metalsmith by Tim McCreight

Book description
I've had and used McCreight's original "Complete Metalsmith" for years and wasn't sure I needed the new version. After owning it for several months now I couldn't be happier. The author assumes that the reader is as interested in WHY things happen as he is. This is not a step-by-step project book, but a bench tool. Do you need to know how to score metal to make a sharp corner? How can you tell when a piece of metal is annealed? Have you been bezel setting stones and are now ready to advance to a prong setting? Ready to make a hinge? Casting? Fusing? Repoussé? Need to know what the Precious Metal Clay craze is about and how to start? It's all in here and the information is presented in a format made for the beginner or the experienced jeweler. He even covers how to photograph your work. I love that McCreight shows several ways of doing things so that if you don't have the equipment or tools, you can still proceed. In his typical style, the author has thought of everything. He's even made a smaller and less expensive version of the book for the "starving artists" and students among us

Making a Natural Trumpet. an Illustrated Workshop Guide by Richard Seraphinoff, Raymond Parks, and Robert Barclay

Book description
This book illustrates each stage in the manufacture of a natural trumpet, starting from flat brass sheet and following as closely as possible the methods, materials and tools of 17th and 18th century craftsmen; the metalworkers of Nürnberg, who worked with a basic technology that relied for its speed and efficiency on hand skill. Using their simple tools and techniques anybody can make a trumpet very much as they did. The text is profusely illustrated with colour photographs taken at one of the trumpet-making workshops which have been successfully run by Bob Barclay and Rick Seraphinoff over several years. Participants have included players, makers and repairers of modern instruments, historians and collectors. All have left with a real appreciation of the craft of the baroque trumpet maker, and have produced their own playable instrument, a copy of a trumpet made by Hanns Hainlein in Nürnberg in 1632. The descriptions cover the processes by which tubes are seamed and joined, bells are hammered to shape and then burnished on a mandrel, bows are filled with molten metal and bent, and decorations are engraved and punched.

The Contemporary Blacksmith by Dona Z. Meilach, Daryl Meier (Introduction), Stephen Bondi (Contributor)

Book description
This important new book tackles the burgeoning revival of the blacksmith's art. Author Dona Meilach has brought together over 500 works by nearly 200 artist-craftsmen from sixteen countries to illustrate the unprecedented activity in modern ironwork that has led to its blossoming into a serious art form. You'll learn several techniques using hot and cold forming with the results clearly shown. You'll be able to recognize how a fence, railing, grille, table, chair, knife, and other items evolve, and better appreciate their design and workmanship. Each chapter provides background for the type of objects shown-- architectural ironwork, sculpture, furniture, containers and vessels, lighting fixtures and candleholders, fireplace accessories, wind vanes, household and liturgical items, and the incredible knives made of Damascus steel. You'll find ample information for how and where to begin your own study in this extensive resource list of organizations, Internet sources, publications, museums, and educational opportunities. The Contemporary Blacksmith** undoubtedly should be found in the libraries of every metalworker, art educator, architect, interior designer, ironwares collector, and crafts person.

Turning Lathes. A Guide to Turning, Screw Cutting, Metal Spinning and Ornamental Turning by James Lukin (Editor)

Book description
Frank Knox referred to James Lukin (1827-1917) as one of the outstanding ornamental turners of the modern period, and considered his books second only to those of Holtzapffel in usefulness, clarifying much of what Holtzapffel left unclear. This reprint contains both the 1894 expanded edition of Turning Lathes and the 200 page 1896 Britannia Company Catalog that lists and illustrates all types of lathes and lathe equipment, as well as other quality machine tools. Lukin, in the over 200 page narrative section, covers turning tools, hardwood turning, metal turning with hand tools, slide test work in metal, the self-acting lathe, chuck-making, turning square sections, screw cutting, metal spinning, a description of BeddowUs (combined) epicycloidal, rose cutting, eccentric cutting, drilling, fluting and vertical cutting, the eccentric chuck, the dome or spherical chuck, the goniostat, the oval or ellipse chuck, and much other fascinating information. Fully illustrated.

Watchmaker's and Model Engineer's Lathe. A User's Manual by Donald De Carle

Book description
Illustrated This book is divided in two parts. The first half of the book covers the overall concepts and use of watchmaker's lathes. The second half reviews all the models that might be typically found. Not entirely encompassing list... but pretty close. If you are considering buying a watchmaker's lathe... this is a MUST HAVE book. Also, this is highly recommended for any one who likes lathes in general. It's obvious the author really cares about his subject. It is enjoyable to read. The diagrams are excellent.
