Almost anyone can weld, cut or shape metal.

Beyond welding metals and plastics, advice extends into the wider workshop with chapters on drills, cutting threads and basic blacksmithing. Andrew Pearce lays out pitfalls and common mistakes section by section, and then helps the reader to avoid or correct them. Useful if you're stumped by a problem!
