Brings the older days of model engineering vividly to life, with instructions on managing your work with much more primitive machinery than we get to use today. I love it, but there seem to be a few pages missing in my copy, so check yours when it arrives!

It is indeed a very dated book. But not a lot has changed when it comes to the basics of workshop technology for ME's. This book, I found, describes the fundamentals very well. The drawings are nice and unambiguous, the photos a bit unclear at times. Some of the projects are very dated and of very little use, or no use in todays world, but I found them interesting non the less. And sometimes the old ways are suitable for times when you want to do something on the cheap. Should this be in print? I think the market shall be the judge of that! I did not regret my purchase one bit.

Bought as a gift for someone else, as I already have a copy. A very good book for a background in workshop practice. I recommend this book.

Why is this still selling? Publishers should be ashamed to be putting out a text which is so dated with such poor photographs. Pretty superficial, too. It was first published in 1950 and then updated in 1976. And doesn't it just show it's age.
