Excerpt from The Iron Founder Supplement: A Complete Illustrated Exposition of the Art of Casting in Iron, Also, the Founding of Statues; The Art of Taking Casts, Pattern Modelling; Useful Formulas and Tables
This book is intended by the author to complete the work begun in "The Iron Founder," for which reason it is called a "Supplement" to the former. Whilst "The Iron Founder" - as stated in the preface to said book - may in all respects be considered a moulder's book, for the reason that the subjects treated are directly in line with the manipulations called forth in the actual daily practice of the moulder, the "Supplement" embraces every other subject concomitant with such practice, all of which it is essential that every moulder should possess some knowledge of, even if he does not aspire to the dignity of an expert in the whole art of moulding.
The author realizes the difficulty of presenting these somewhat dry and matter-of-fact subjects in a manner calculated to command the attention of such as are not directly interested in foundry affairs, and his daily experience in the foundry has convinced him that very few of the rank and file, even amongst moulders them selves, care to peruse the apparently tiresome pages of a book devoted exclusively to matters with which they are brought into daily contact.
