40 Power Tools You Can Make

Originally published by ""Popular Mechanics"" in 1941, this classic manual is a testament to the ingenuity and dedication of American craftsmen. The collected projects, written by various craftsmen, demonstrate how to build a 10-inch thickness planer, a ""swing saw"" (or cut-off saw), and a hand-built hydraulic press, in addition to drill presses, jigsaws, sanders, bending brakes, band saws, a wood lathe, and many other useful machines. All of these machines are built with simple and highly available materials, and every project is accompanied by the original instructions, illustrations, and measured drawings. In addition, this vintage reprint offers its readers a unique look into a period in American history--when materials and labor were stretched thin, and American craftsmen were forced to ""bootstrap"" solutions out of the bare essentials available to them.

Authors: Elman Wood, P.A. Messinger, W.C. Lammey, Walter E. Burton
