This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1898 edition. Excerpt: ...of the head to one-fourth the original size. I only use a large headed mandrel when using large disks. "The disk is a very painful thing, and I use mostly strips and work them back and forth slowly.' Do you? Oh!--I don't; I use disks almost exclusively, always when it is possible.
