About this book

Low-cost tools can be made and repaired by carpenters using locally available materials make it possible for artisans to practise their trade without buying or replacing expensive imported equipment. This revised edition incorporates an appendix describing modifications arising from training programmes in Zimbabwe. The new designs include a combination gauge, and a sash clamp which can be used on the ground instead of on a bench. An invaluable addition to any workshop.
