Metal Spinning for Craftsmen, Instructors, and Students (1936)

cover photo

You can chuck a solid block of metal into a lathe and cut enough of it away to get the shape you need. You can also chuck a piece of sheet metal in the same lathe and using slightly different tools spin it into a smoothly contoured shape that can become anything from a teapot to a missile nose cone.

In this quality book you'll learn historical facts about metal spinning, the necessary mechanical setups, spinning tools, chucks for spinning, the treatment of different metals, lubricants to be used, the actual process of spinning, and educational as well as useful projects.

This book will teach you enough so that you can turn a sheet of copper into a beautiful vase or candlestick.

You'll enjoy this 1936 technical school textbook. It's simply written, loaded with valuable illustrations, and gets right to task of teaching you spinning. Master this skill. It's not all that hard, but very few people including metal workers, know how to spin. You can learn how with this book and some elbow grease.
