In this section I am including a large number of designs for workshop equipment that
I have had published in the Model Engineers’ Workshop magazine over the twenty years
that I had been writing for it. In addition to the workshop items, many of my articles
on workshop processes are also included. The additions are an ongoing project and
new pages are still being added. All the necessary drawings are included together
with details of the manufacturing methods.
Further pages includes workshop tips, workshop data such as drill sizes for tapping
and the gallery showing a few of the items I have made. Also included are details
of the eight metalworking books I have written and are published in the Workshop
Practice Series, four of which are now being published in the US by Fox Chapel Publishing.
Do note that whilst having only slight changes they are otherwise identical with
the workshop practice series but with different titles. See here for more detail.
Do feel free to make copies of the drawings, or the data charts, for your personal
use remembering that the contents of the pages are copyright material and not to
be used beyond that purpose. This particularly applies to the drawings and data
charts that should not be published in any form, including republishing them on the
Internet, typically within a forum.
I am happy for viewers to extract photographs from my site to add to a forum, or
similar, to highlight some item being made. Do though please quote my web site as
the source of the design.
