Projects from the book series "Build your own Machine Shop from Scrap" by David Gingery

The books are intended to be used in sequence to produce a metal working shop from mostly scrap metal. You start by building a foundry to cast all the parts you will need. You then begin building a metal lathe and actually use the lathe to machine some of its own pieces. Once you have a lathe you can build any of the other projects though it is recommended you build them in sequence.
