Detailed Description

Turning and Mechanical Manipulation, Volume 1. Author, John Jacob Holtzapffel

Turning and Mechanical Manipulation, Volume 1 by John Jacob Holtzapffel explores ornamental turning on a wood lathe, with nearly infinite capacity for shaping and decorating. Ornamental lathe turning was perfected by the Holtzapffel family between 1780 and 1914, turning lathes into amazing machines that make use of a broad range of tooling attachments to transform wood and other turning materials into an astounding variety of intricate patterns. Turning and Mechanical Manipulation, Volume 1 covers materials: tortoise shell, ivory, horn, amber, slate, marble, semi-precious and precious stones. Their preparation, working properties and ornamental characteristics. Also the stability of woods used in turnery. The manufacture of cast and malleable iron and alloys, forging, hardening, casting and founding, joining and rolling sheet metals, and various methods of soldering. Five volumes in total comprise the Holtzappfels' monumental bible of complex turning, collectively titled Turning and Mechanical Applications.
