Ingram Publishing Services
Hand tools are essential to woodworking, but, unlike power tools, they don't come with detailed owner's manuals. Think of this book as the missing manual for your hand tools.
Peter Korn covers virtually all the hand tools in the modern woodshop. For convenience, tools are listed alphabetically within chapters organized by function (abrading, cutting, planing, sawing...).
Beautifully illustrated, The Woodworker's Guide to Hand Tools explains:
- what each tool is used for
- which tools are essential for your shop
- how to recognize quality when buying tools
- how to tune up tools for top performance
- and, in many cases, how to use each tool efficiently
Here is every hand tool's missing instruction book. Virtually all the hand tools commonly used by the contemporary woodworker or furniture maker are covered in detail. Readers will learn each tool's special uses, what to look for when buying a hand tool, and how to tune and use each tool most efficiently. Organized by alphabetical functional groupings for easy access. 180 drawings.
An instructional book on the use of hand tools used by woodworkers and furniture makers demonstrates each tool's special uses, what to look for when buying a hand tool, and how to tune and use each tool most efficiently. Original.
