Excellent Informative Book.

This is quite a unique book, in that it covers a wide spectrum of the metal trades. Tom Lipton has a done an excellent job of covering each with his expertise. There are are a lot of extremely useful tips on each. I must admit, I delayed purchasing this book for quite a while due to its price (probably due to the large quantities of colour photos). However, having now read it I would have been happy had I paid full price for it. The author has also started a blog, which I highly recommend. more
