    Thanks for the post and welcome to the forum.

    Its a shame that the scans are so badly done making graphics difficult to see and read.

    I tried the .pdf file and agree about the quality of the scans. I also tried the "Read on-line" version and that is much better - worth trying.

    Wonders of technology.
    Years ago I transcribed the Evans OT articles & photographed the images published in English Mechanics magazine, took ages, in fact I never did finish all the pics.
    Now I can get the lot with one click of my mouse.

    Thanks for the links.

    Default Decorative turning

    I've been after books on this subject for some time.I doubt that I will ever be able to be lucky enough to do any of it but it is just another fascinating aspect of woodturning.
