Default A book, The Art of Copper Smithing

I ran across this e book some time in the past and do not remember if I have already posted it here or not.

This edition is 1911ish and I must confess I enjoyed just the preface as much as the rest of the book of that day. I was able to get loads of information to use with my copper workings especially making Vanes etc.

Hope it's of some use to the members here.

Very nice. Thanks!

I've had the following book for some time. Bought a sheet of copper 36" x 84" at the junkyard for $60 bucks. Again, some time ago. Maybe one day. It would look great on my barn.

Thanks Jef, for posting this. My son has been doing some copper work, mainly on Yeti cups and some trophy belt buckles, but he's been also doing some blacksmithing too. I'll pass this manual on to him.
