Originally Published by J. F. SALLOWS
If you have any interest in Blacksmithing then this is a great book to have in your collection.
The original edition of this Rare book was printed in 1907
In offering this book to my fellow craftsmen, I do
not wish it to be inferred that I consider myself the
only one who knows how to do the work described in
its pages. In 27 years experience at blacksmithing,
however, working in nearly all kinds of shops, including
horseshoeing, marine, railroad, printing press, sawmill
machinery and automobile shops, I have had opportunities
seldom obtained by the average smith. I
therefore hope that the book will not only help the
young men in the trade, but some of the older blacksmiths
as well ; and since much attention has been
given to the subjects of hardening, tempering, casehardening,
coloring, etc., I believe it will also prove
useful to machinists and toolmakers. Part of the matter
upon these latter subjects was contributed, in somewhat
different form, to the columns of Machinery,
but most of the material is here used for the first time.
Everything in these pages is from actual experience
