Overview

Practical Joining by Tim McCreight

This aptly named book addresses the many ways that jewelers attach one part to another, with chapters on Cold Connections, Hot Connections, and Adhesives. In his characteristic no-nonsense style, McCreight provides useful information through drawings and text, explaining techniques in language that does not require knowledge of the field. This is primarily a technical manual, not a catalog of finished work. The black and white text and drawings provide simplicity and economy.
