Description

Before you spend a bundle on new equipment, make better use of the tools you already own by following an expert's guide to better mastery of tool techniques. You can expand your ability to use all the major tool types. Special illustrated sections show the following implements in action: measuring and marking tools, bench saws, chisels and planes, clamps and cramps, hammers and screwdrivers, band saws and table saws, planers and thicknessers, drills and mortising machines, routers, sanders, and portable saws. You'll also improve your techniques for a variety of actions that include selecting and preparing timber; machining edges and cutting to width; marking out; using handsaws and chisels; hand planing; machining to length; using a router; drilling and mortising; and shaping components. Other ways to increase the value of your tools include tips on care and maintenance, and making sure you use the right tools with the right woods.show more
