Covering the complete range of work done under the sheet metal heading including plastic forming and fabrication. As it was revised as the sheet goods of plastic types were coming on the scene in the 60's as a material used in the general building and equipment world.

Has a great chapter on soldering irons from forging of the head, to what makes a good joint,to the various types of fire pots used to heat the irons for use.

It is mostly built around the duct work and the seams for heating and ventilating work, since central heating was coming in when the book was written and the demand for tin knocker was high after WWII.

B&W photos,line drawings, charts and step by step drawings in the seaming chapter greatly reduce the confusion in making the various seams.
