Outdated and crudely cobbled together.
on 20 May 2006
I was shocked at just how outdated this publication is! It looks like a re-print of some archaic School book from the 1970's. Everything is crudely set out (No Photoshop here, doubt PC's even existed when this was first published!) with small grainy photo's which are often difficult to make out. The text is also unusually large and very sparse throughout, meaning there isn't as much info within it's 236 pages as you might expect. Some of the materials used are also referred to by their brand name, and as this is an American publication, very few of the products or their equivelant are available here in the UK.
My honest opinion, avoid! Save your money and invest in a copy of 'The Mouldmaker's Handbook' By Jean-Pierre Delpech & Marc-Andre Figueres. This covers every aspect of mouldmaking and casting with clear and consise information, illustrations and photo's.
