Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I am very happy with the book because my husband is happy and it was a gift. It arrived promptly in good condition. He is the new owner of an old ShopSmith Mark V. He's trying to figure out what this amazing tool can do and how to use the various attachments and commented several times about new things he learned from the book.
This book can and should be found at your local thrift or used book store. Not only was it he copyrighted in1955, but it was sold as new at an inflated price. The power tools depicted would be a rare find. Getting past the disappointment, there are techniques here that you won't find anywhere. I was going to return it, but I've decided to keep it. Modern tools I can find anywhere but old pre-modern tools ways of getting the work done are invaluable.
I am still conflicted about how much I paid for this book. Therefore, I will be returning it and will pick it up later on for about about 1/3 of the price I paid.
