Description

“Smiths’ Work” is a 1903 book by Australian writer Paul. N. Hasluck dealing with blacksmithing and related subjects. With detailed diagrams and concise descriptions, this handbook is perfect for students or novice blacksmiths, and it would make for a fantastic addition to collections of related literature. Paul Nooncree Hasluck (1854 – 1916) was an Australian writer and editor. He was a master of technical writing and father of the ‘do-it-yourself’ book, producing many works on subjects including engineering, handicrafts, woodwork, and more. Other notable works by this author include: “Treatise on the Tools Employed in the Art of Turning” (1881), “The Wrath-Jobber’s Handy Book” (1887), and “Screw-Threads and Methods of Producing Them” (1887). Contents include: “Forges and Appliances”, “Hand Tools”, “Drawing Down and Upsetting”, “Welding and Punching”, “Conditions of Work; Principles of Formation”, “Bending and Ring Making”, “Miscellaneous Examples of Forged Work”, “Cranks, Model Work, and Die Forging”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
