I stuck this on the HD boards a while ago but I thought it'd be a good idea to put it here as well...
It's a complete coppersmithing book, published in 1911.

The full version in djvu (an ebook format) is on the left-hand side at the very bottom. You may have to download a reader, which can be found here for free:

The book is available in sections pdf for at http://www.thesheetmetalshop.com/module ... d-201.html
I have all parts downloaded. it is a great book but requires a bit of foundation knowledge. I am always finding the solution to my still problems in it. And it is over 100 Years old.

Pint--do you have any other links? I have tried all sorts of ways to get a pdf of this book. The sheetmetalshop comes out with a watermark everywhere, so I guess they want money. I sure like to not always read off the screen.

Cheers.

Thanks for the links. Great info!

I especially like fig. 472 of the still with 2 thumpers and worm on page 313 (Part11.pdf, page 33).

i got this a year or so ago in paperback.
pretty interesting, but for me at least there was only a small bit that was actually applicable to us...
just a few pages out of the hundreds. on the boilers and pipe etc.

mostly dealt with crazy lead-fluxing seals and such...

unless this is something different
