Extract from back cover of book:

The accumulation of odds and ends of bar and rod is inevitable with any lathework, but rather than throw them into an ever-growing scrap-box, why not turn them into useful little tools to simplify and speed up future work?

In this book Stan Bray describes a variety of small implements, none of which demands much material or takes more than an evening to make. You may not see an immediate need for some of them but once made it is surprising how often they will be used. There is also the satisfaction of turning what might be wasted into something useful and the knowledge that money has been saved.
