The accumulation of odds and ends of bar and rod is inevitable with any lathework, but rather than throw them into an ever-growing scrap-box, why not turn them into useful little tools to simplify and speed up future work? In this book Stan Bray describes twenty-two simple but useful adjuncts to the tool kit for bench and lathe use, none taking any more than 3 to 4 hours or involving special materials, yet each able to save considerable time in use as well as aiding accuracy. You may not see an immediate need for some of them, but once made it is surprising how often they will be used. There is also the satisfaction of turning what might have been wasted into something useful and the knowledge that money has been saved.

Christmas was coming. Out came the tree, dressed up in finery, splendid to see. Trinkets and tinsel with baubles and bows, a mouse with a hat and a very red nose...' So begins Lynley Dodd's cracking Christmas tale told in her usual rollicking, rhythmic rhyme. Festive preparations are being made in Slinky Malinki's house and the rapscallion, mischievous cat is most curious about the Christmas tree. With its reindeer, ribbons, baubles and bells, it's too tempting a treat for Slinky not to investigate. So Slinky Malinki, with mischievous glee, creeps out from the shadows to climb up the tree...

This handy project book provides details on how to make a range of useful tools for the workshop. As well as knurling tools and tool maker's vices it has simpler projects such as a scriber and small clamps. The instructions are detailed with suggestions for alternative techniques or materials.

The photo on the front cover is a little misleading as this book does not have a tail stock die holder although it does have some other tools for helping with tapping and using dies.
