When confronted with a metal working project around the house, who hasn't thought about the metal shop class in high school we could have taken? That real world knowledge would come in handy as the pipe leaks, the heating duct needs to be replaced, and the stainless steel sink starts to show its age. With Back to Shop Class: Metal Working, you'll get a chance to go back to school and learn the basics of working with metal, from understanding the properties of the various alloys and the tools needed to work them, to the fundamentals of shaping, cutting, and fastening it into various shapes. You can even learn how to fire up a forge or work with a welder. Metal is not a mystery; you just need someone to teach you how to work with it, just like that shop class teacher in high school. With Metal Working, you'll learn to tackle DIY projects yourself, save money, guarantee good results, and have a little fun. Paperback, 136 pages.
