As an apprentice machinist, I have been looking for a book that was up-to-date and something that would show me die-cut, grinders, jigs for my metal work. This is not only the only book I've found, it is full of great illustrations, which helped me on the first job right after I bought the book. Even if you just fiddle around w/metals in your garage, you're going to get a lot out of this book. People told me to look for the name Audel and now I know why.
