Detailed Description

40 Power Tools You Can Make. Popular Mechanics

40 Power Tools You Can Make from Popular Mechanics, takes the reader back to a time in America (during World War II) when resources for tool-making were scarce and shop owners had to be creative in providing the needed tools for their work. The goal was to break down shop tools to their basics, removing some of the mystery, and show the woodworker how he could make many of the tools with available supplies.

This book will do the same for today's reader. Even if you are not looking to build your own tools, you will enjoy the "thinking outside the box" approach to these projects and the period (1941) drawings, illustrations and photographs.

Tools covered include a drill press made with pipes, wood lathe, a jigsaw made from a sewing machine, bandsaw, thickness planer, belt sander, an electric hacksaw and many others.
