Extract from back cover of book:

This collection of 18 unique projects for home workshop equipment enables the model engineer to create useful and even essential items that cannot be purchased commercially, including an auxilliary workbench, tap holders, distance and height gauges, a lathe back stop, a tailstock die-holder, faceplate clamps, collets, DTI accessories, sash clamps, low profile clamps and a tapping stand.

Each project is designed to make the model engineer's task in hand easier than it would have been had the items not been made.

About the Author - Harold Hall is a former editor of the enthusiasts' magazine Model Engineer's Workshop, within whose pages all of these projects were originally featured.
