The ability to perform heat treatments in the home workshop can be a very useful asset, enabling you to make, repair and maintain tools, to anneal and normalize work-hardened metals, and even to create decorative finishes. Heat Treatment is a practical guide to this valuable range of workshop techniques and how to employ them safely and effectively. Featuring step-by-step photography throughout, this book covers metals and their properties; building a heat treatment oven for the home workshop; case hardening, flame hardening and tempering and finally, decorative finishes with colour case hardening, oil blacking and enamelling. Metals and their properties Will be of great interest to model engineers, tool makers, car restorers and anyone with an interest in metalworking. Features step-by-step photography throughout with 291 colour photographs. Richard Lofting has over forty years' experience of performing heat treatments in the workshop and is a regular contributor to Farming Heritage magazine.Another title in the highly successful Crowood Metalworking Guides series.

Designed for the core course on Workshop Practice offered to all first-year diploma and degree level students of engineering, this book presents clear and concise explanation of the basic principles of manufacturing processes and equips students with overall knowledge of engineering materials, tools and equipment commonly used in the engineering field. The book describes the general principles of different workshop processes such as primary and secondary shaping processes, metal joining methods, surface finishing and heat treatment. The workshop processes covered also include the hand-working processes such as benchwork, fitting, arc welding, sheet metal work, carpentry, blacksmithy and foundry. It also explains the importance of safety measures to be followed in workshop processes and details the procedure of writing the records of the practices. The tools and equipment used in each hand-working process are enumerated before elaborating the process. Finally, the book discusses the machining processes such as turning operations, the cutting tools and the tools used for measuring and marking, and explains the working principle of Engine Lathe. An appendix for advanced level practice and assessment of work has also been included. New to This Edition : A separate chapter on Plumbing as per the revised syllabus of Indian Universities Method for sketching isometric single line piping layout Neatly-drawn illustrations and examples on Plumbing Key Features : Follows the International Standard Organization (ISO) code of practice for drawings. Includes a large number of illustrations to explain the methods and processes discussed. Contains chapter-end questions for viva voce test and exercises for making models.

Workshop Practice has been expanding explosively during the past decade and the initial concept of this book was simply to collate some of the newer and easy applicable methods particularly those involving some degree of automation. This plan was altered in favour of treatise that not only brings workshop methodology up-to-date but also includes representative protocols for the application of these techniques. Accordingly, over a hundred authors have pooled their efforts to produce this volume. In so doing, the mutual hope is that it will serve as a reference portfolio to help both the novice and veteran research get on with the job in an inspired efficient and productive manner. On the whole graduating students of most streams of Engineering may find interest in this book and will benefit having one at hand. In the preparation of this book large number of books and research papers have been consulted. So many authenticity is claimed. The author wishes to express to express his deepest appreciation to the many people who have contributed in one way or the other to the preparation of the title. The author will greatly appreciate having his attention called to any questionable statement. Contents: General Introduction, Material Testing Treatment and Properties, Engineering Materials, Metals and Alloys/ Nonferrous, Carpentry Shop and Wood Working Tools, Benchwork and Fitting Shop, Welding Shop, Sheet Metal Work.
