Simple Workshop Devices by Tubal Cain
Book DescriptionHowever well equipped the workshop may be there seems to be an incessant need to make up special gadgets of one sort or another. These may range from mutilating a clothes peg to act as a 'third hand' up to major modifications to an existing machine tool. The making of such devices can be fun (indeed, some may appear to do nothing else!) but nevertheless the time taken up in 'devising the device' can often delay the completion of an important project. Shared experience is a most potent tool in reducing such delays, and can, moreover, often provide solutions to problems hitherto believed to be intractable. Tubal Cain has enjoyed more than sixty years' experience in designing and building engines and machines (in both full size and model dimensions) and over this time has made many ancillary devices. In this book he shares 52 of them with you. A number of these had been published in magazines from time to time and some were assembled in volume form about thirty years ago. The opportunity was later taken not only to reprint that book but to revise some of the entries to take advantage of user experience, to add new material and to introduce it into the popular Workshop Practice Series.

Books By Author Tubal Cain
Spring Design and Manufacture, Paperback (February 1998)

Hardening, Tempering and Heat Treatment, Paperback (January 1998)
A comprehensive exposition of the structure of steels and the effects of different heat treatments, particularly in respect of tools. With accurate colour temperature charts.
Soldering and Brazing, Paperback (January 1998)
Joining metal by one form or another of soft and hard soldering, or brazing with various alloys, are run-of-the-mill jobs in model and light engineering workshops. Tubal Cain examines the processes, equipment, materials and explains what is happening in the joints as they are made.
Milling Operations in the Lathe, Paperback (January 1998)» View all books by Tubal Cain
This book is a thorough and practical discourse on how to use the lathe for all types of milling work. Next to turning, the most valuable use of the lathe is for milling operations, either using the lathe itself to drive the cutters or by extending its scope by adding a separate milling attachment.
