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. All the necessary drawings being included together
with details of the manufacturing methods. 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.
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 and front cover pictures.
See here for more detail.
Copyright Material 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and data charts that should not be published in any form, including republishing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.
