This informative book covers all aspects of setting up a fully equipped metalworking workshop. It will benefit anyone who is building a workshop for the first time, or just wants to upgrade an existing operation. If you have had your lathe stuck in a corner of the garage for years, this is definitely the book for you. Even if you think your workshop is already complete, you'll discover eye-opening new information here. This book presents a complete guide to building or converting a workshop space and then equipping it to serve a wide range of metalworking activities including model engineering, model making, car restoration, and clockmaking. It explains all the essential requirements of the workshop environment: planning, heating and lighting, condensation plus health and safety factors. It then explains in detail the choice of various tools and equipment for differing tasks so the new workshop owner can avoid making unwise purchases. The book is based on a very popular series of articles that originally appeared in the pages of Model Engineers' Workshop magazine, and which have been revised for publication in this edition.
