This is a reproduction, not a photocopy, of an original Walker Turner The Band Saw and Jig Saw, Their Use and Application Book. This book is part of a series of books that Walker Turner published on their woodworking machinery. Each one contains a wealth of knowledge about the use of these old machines that can still be applied to machines manufactured today.
This book covers many different topics related to band saws which include: how to sharpen a new band saw blade, proper blade tension, how to coil a blade, cutting curves, compound band sawing, group cutting, and how to braze a broken blade.
This book covers many different topics related to jig saws which include: the tension head, how to select blades and speeds, making a perforated pattern, marquetry in quantity and production, inlaying metals, die filing, sign making, puzzles, jewelers metal saws, sandpapering, and more. Please see index pictured in the gallery above.
I have collected this information for many years and have found the information they contain to be priceless in using and setting up the machines properly. I believe this manual will be a valuable resource of knowledge that will provide a lot of helpful information that is often hard to find. My manuals are not photocopies. I maintain a high standard of quality in my reproductions. Most of the manuals I reproduce look better than their originals. I have professionally digitally edited every page, and removed stains, wrinkles and handwriting. All of the manuals are printed on thick white paper to withstand shop wear and tear, plus it’s easier to read then a pdf download.
