5.0 out of 5 stars Make it the First book on the subject 13 Nov 2008
Format:Paperback
A great, well written hand-on book that precedes FOURNIER and REMUS on my shelf.
It shies away from using expensive tooling, very "Hands-on", introducing you to traditional tools that will be good enough for even those involved in refurbishing cars.
It was written by a British School Teacher who taught the subject and is typically well organised. It starts off with H&S, Ergonomics (the older I get, the more I am thankful for this!), metals and their behaviour, marking, patterns - and gets steadily deeper.

It probably is too simple for someone who did Engineering and fabrication at A-Level. But is a gift to the rest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! 6 Sep 2011
By Riz
Format:Paperback
I love motorcycles and thought this book would be a good introduction to fabricating body parts out of sheet metal. It was a good decision...though it doesn't specifically discuss motorcycles, but it gives the basic know how for what I aim to do and best of all, no use of high-tech industrial tools. As mentioned in a previous review, this book shows methods of sheet metal work with simple and traditional tools.

This is a must have for any tinkering fan!
