304 pages of how to re-use, re-form, and rejuvinate old tools and scrap. As a hobby blacksmith and general handyman, I found this book very informative and inciteful. The drawings are clear and concise and the instructions are easy to follow. The projects move along at a good pace unlike other books of this nature that oversimplify instructions. Very good book for reference, or for display in the library. Kevin Hagan
