Written by Joshua Rose.

Subtitled: Embracing Lathe Work, Branch Work, Core Work, Sweep Work; and Practical Gear Construction; and the Preparation and Use of Tools. Sixth Edition-1889

This book is as useful today as it was over 100 years ago. It was written to give machinists practical instruction on how to design and construct patterns in doing so, it describes the actual pattern shop practice of the late 19th century, using the terms and methods of that period. Joshua Rose explains the various types of patterns, how they are constructed, and the tools that are used. This is a reprint of the sixth edition, which gives some indication of the popularity of the book among late 19th century practitioners. 250 illustrations.

Code No. 007037, 248 pages, ISBN 187933559X, $34.00
