Author Biography - Lawrence H. Sparey
Lawrence Sparey was that somewhat rare combination - a professional engineer with what he himself called 'an amateur's outlook' which allowed him to maintain his appreciation of the difficulties of the average workshop owner with his small lathe. He was also a pioneer of model aeroplane internal combustion engines for home construction in Britain of the 1940s. This book represents the accumulated engineering wisdom of a previous generation.
